“A distressed society can cloud all of us. Yet, I hope my colorful canvasses might add to the world a dimension of engagement in a new future, a more peaceful time of constructive achievements of love, joy, wonder, responsibility and of broader acceptance and cooperation”
 Jeroen de Bruine 
“I’m very interested in anything that breaks the rules and frees the spirit to achieve an honest clarity in what I’m communicating. I am driven with equal interest and intensity by both figurative and the abstract as a way to express who I am as an artist”
– Michael Long
“I am so proud pf Jeroen. I have witnessed the blossoming of an exciting and beautiful new aspect of my husband of 28 years! And I am also so proud of Mike, and to be a part of this exciting art show journey!”
