Harriet Febland, ASCA’s 3-term President Emeritus wrote of her work:
“Cajipe Endaya‘s femininity, her strength, is the foundation of what she creates. Its impact is immediate--- we are made aware of powerful colors, multiple patterns upon patterns, textured cloth and designed papers, tactile and touchable, buttons and strings. All of these are factors of her environment, her people, her country and the women, men, and crafts that surround her. They, combined with the story she tells makes her work the success it is--- a powerful statement by an outstanding Filipino artist in her prime.”
