Clippings

"In embroidery Mrs. Balfour Ker maintained her reputation. We regret to hear that Mrs. Balfour Ker intends to devote herself entirely to painting in the future. We trust this intention will not be adhered to as this lady's skill in the applied art quite exceeds her success as a pictorial artist."
       From "British Columbia Letters, No. IV", by (unknown)
       The Canadian Architect and Builder 1900

"Still, Mrs. Balfour Kerr and Mrs. Lionel Williams were well represented in oil colors ... Mrs. Balfour Kerr and Mrs. Lionel Williams had a screen of embroidery, some of it extremely well designed and executed ..."
       From "British Columbia Letters, No. VII", by (unknown)
