" ... brightly colored work, possesses a lovely looseness and lyricism, its graceful forms reminiscent of the ephemeral fantasy forms and chance effects of surrealism. "

New Haven Register, 2005

" Stover's studio reveals his love of art, his love of art history and his love of the materials art is made from. "

Star Publications, 2002

" While encompassing lessons learned from Art History, Stover pictorially chronicles his life's journey - a voyage often alluding to domesticity, home and navigating the waters of parenthood."

AM Weaver, 2013

"From one picture to the next, I'm telling a big story. Part autobiography, part discovery, it's really my life within these pictures. I string along each idea from image to image like a conversation. A lifelong conversation with myself that I get to share with others."
