Mother Dwarf's work feels deeply, intrinsically, unnervingly correct in ways that are
mysteriously unconscious to me. She is keeping a different sort of record, telling
slanted stories. She is mother goose for the intentionally lost and half-enlightened.

Mother Dwarf Smith - Tremont artist solos at 68
May 13, 1994
A most common name, a most unusual family
August 11, 1993

Florence E. Smith, a tall woman known in art circles as Mother Dwarf, came
from Las Vegas to join her son, Smith, at his insistence when she was
widowed in 1990. A former ceramist and quilter, she does assemblage art.
Her stamp is brightly appealing narrative pieces with fairy tale themes."
Helen Cullinan - The Cleveland Plain Dealer - 9.30.1993
