Applause: Accolades, Street Cred & Client Love
But first, a brief note....
I’m grateful to the incredible clients who've appreciated my work enough to make it their own. Mentors in many forms have made this career choice way more fun than work, and everyone who helped me even when they didn't know they were helping me do things that are this big. Thank you.
Notes from the sandbox, photo 1962
Jul 21, 2007 - WSJ.com: Art advisor Lisa Austin eliminated nine of her initial picks, leaving her with a short list of three artists: Masuo Ojima, Myra Burg and Elaine Hyde. Of 1,500 American Craft Council artists. "Collectible."
Wall Street Journal
Myra Burg is an extremely talented artist and architect. We are happy clients with a number of her works proudly displayed in our home, some of which are published and featured in her website. In addition, she has work displayed in the county courts building here in San Luis Obispo. A tapestry two stories high, its one of the finest pieces of art in this city. During a trip to Puerto Rico I was captivated to see one of her displays adorning a prominent wall in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel. This is a young woman who has more energy and talent that I have ever seen in my over 40 years as a professor of design. It is a pleasure to see one of my former students do so well in her creative endeavors. Anyone would be fortunate indeed to have any of Myra’s work in their home.

I am such a fan of creative souls. Myra Burg is such a soul. Her ability to blend texture, color & dimension is mind-boggling.
We enjoy our Quiet Oboes as they bring so much joy to our home. Thank you Myra for shedding light and joy in our lives.

Janet included me in an Elton John themed party. The outfit was conceived with her (and Elton) in mind. I couldn’t resist using this photo.
Thought on Contextural Attire
I first discovered the artistic talent of Myra Burg through Google while searching for unique 3d wall art.
I live in Australia, so thought it would be almost impossible to convey what I wanted and obtain quotes.
However, Myra was a delight to deal with – so creative and patient which made the whole process a joy!
Myra has an amazing eye for colour combinations and how to set the pieces at the correct angles on the wall (the architect coming out!)
She's a pure artistic genius!
Felicity Bowman, Cairns, Australia
A note to the reader: That’s Felicity next to me in the photo. The cost of her trip to California was less than the cost of shipping to Cairns, Australia. And a spectacular time was had by all. Come back soon, Felicity. You’ve become family.
Most sincerely, most fondly,
My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Myra Burg and Liz Cummings. Their art captured their attention. After installation in our home, the beautiful Quiet Oboes and canvas paintings became major focal points for our friends and families to enjoy. Like all art it brings us pleasure, smiles to our faces and enriches us each day!

Liz and I met Dennis whilst trespassing with purpose on his property.
We’re so grateful to not be in jail. Thank you Dennis and Chris
Notes on what not to do while setting an art show
