New Work – March 2015

This painting has been in progress for nearly three years. It was almost completely finished in 2013, but then I took a hiatus to have my daughter, and when I came back, I didn’t like the painting much and reworked several sections of it. So this painting has the distinction of the longest working period … Read more

New Work – June 2014

There’s been another kind of long hiatus while I was busy making a new person. This is Isobel.

New Work – July 2012

Roman Candle 2012 40 x 62 inches acrylic on canvas   I began this painting before I was pregnant. At the time that I moved out of my old studio last September, it was half-finished, and it spent the winter rolled up and waiting for me to work on it again post-baby. When I returned … Read more

New Work – January 2012

I have been on a bit of a hiatus lately, as I have been busy augmenting my family. My son, Theo, was born January 10th, and while we are blissed out on how wonderful he is, I have not been in the studio for quite some time. That said, now that we are getting some … Read more

New Work – May 2011

Last weekend, I went to Philly and made prints with my friend Erin Robin again. These are made on a press, not hand-pressed as before, and we focused on one-color block prints in larger editions. I made a second edition of my popular ‘Baltimore Apartment’ print (now in red!) and a new print, ‘Cold Night’. … Read more

New Work – December 2010

Here are a couple of new things to round out 2010. Honey Pie, 2010, acrylic on canvas, 15 x 36 inches   Sad Galaxy, 2010, collage on paper, 11 x 14 inches (This is another one made from the Sotheby’s catalogs I mentioned before. It’s satisfying, if somewhat sacrilegious, cutting up other artists’ work to … Read more

New Work – August 2010

Three Queens, 2010, collage on paper, 11 x 14 inches   I was given a pile of Sotheby’s catalogs a few months ago, and here is what’s come of that. I’ve mixed in some well-known pieces here so see if you are better than I am at hide and seek. Comment

New Work – March 2010

Strange Rider, 2010, acrylic on canvas, 36 x 55 inches   It looks like my palette is shifting. This painting wanted to be grey and cherry red the whole time I was working it, and then became… this. However, I feel like I am getting better control of my color. This is better than grey … Read more

New Work – December 2009

Bêtes Sauvages, 2009, acrylic and gouache on paper mounted to panel, 8 x 10 inches   Recently I’ve been sharing my studio with the lovely Mackenzie Peck, who inspired this piece with her “What Shall I Paint” game. In this case it was ‘a forest at night with a wild animal of your choosing’. Perhaps … Read more

New Work – October 2009

Here’s a commissioned work for Michael and Tara Owen of New York. Bride, 2009, acrylic on canvas, 15 x 36 This is a wonderful format for a single figure and bridges the gap between my large paintings and my small prints. I suspect there will be more to come at this size. Comment  

New Work – July 2009

Carnival, 2009, acrylic on canvas, 55 x 75 inches   I learned a lot from this painting. Composing on this scale can eat you alive unless you develop a strategy for attacking the space. In this case I took a cue (or two) from Georges Braque, who really knew how to divide and conquer a … Read more

New Work – April 2009

I’m pretty sure I wrecked this mounting it onto panel. Cross your fingers it survives the operation. At least digital images are forever.   Pedestal Heads, 2009, collage and gouache on paper, 36 x 36 inches

New Work – February 2009

More small work that is odd and amusing. It’s been said my work is all heads and hands, well… Hermit Crab (red) 2009, collage on paper, 11 x 15 inches Hermit Crab (blue), 2009, collage on paper, 11 x 15 inches Comment    

New Work – January 2009

I’ve always had a fondness for Henri Rousseau and after receiving the wonderful Jungles In Paris catalogue for Christmas this year, I made this funny little guy: Rousseau Tiger, 2009, acrylic on canvas, 14 x 14 inches Comment

New Work – November 2008

  Over the last few days, I’ve been borrowing plaster sculptures of heads from Nicholas Cairns and drawing from them. These drawings feel sad to me, and may have something to do with the death of my mentor, Grace Hartigan. The two small ones at the top are about 5 inches square and done in … Read more

New Work – August 2008

I’ve been printing again with my friend, master printer Erin Robin. Here’s what we made: Spider Night, 2008, hand-pressed linoleum print on paper, 8 x 10 inches, edition of 7 Comment

New Work- January 2008

Happy new year! Architecture, 2008, graphite and collage on paper, 45 × 60 inches Teaching drawing has me interested in doing some drawing myself, and in finding a way to collage into it effectively. I am enjoying the fact that the collage wants to (visually) jump off the surface of the image, so I’m using … Read more

Fat Belly, 2007, 6 × 8 inches, hand-pressed linoleum print on paper edition of 10, 5 artist proofs   Baltimore Apartment, 2007, 6 × 8 inches, hand-pressed linoleum print on paper edition of 5, no artist proofs Just returned from Philly, where I worked with old friend and master printer Erin Tohill Robin to make … Read more
