"At the spring meeting and exhibition of the Lambeth Art Club some good work was shown by the competitors for the prizes offered ... Miss Sybil Tawse, who has an excellent idea of design, and no small skill in drawing, won the prize for figure composition, The Bride, and another for design in black-and-white with a graceful sketch in line of a fairy figure amid surroundings of butterflies and floral forms." (The Studio, 1908)
