Arlington

Arlington is a unorthodox portraiture series in which I explore the tension between figure and landscape. The ongoing series features my sister-in-law in the fairy tale environment she has carved out for herself. She is the innocent heroine from the tales of my childhood, strong and resilient yet delicate and full of warmth and timeless grace. The magical setting for these figurative paintings is her small farm, where the horses sleep under a crystal chandelier, surrounded all about by wild woods and mountains. Please keep checking back to see the new paintings as they unfold.

Into the Country (larger works)

This series started with a group of miniatures from my ongoing Monthly Miniature project, but some of my subjects demanded to be painted on a larger scale.

My father was an engineer and around when I was born, he was suffering from a mysterious illness. Doctors weren’t giving him any answers and he decided to move to a small farm where he could walk in his own woods, breathe the fresh air and grow everything he ate organically with his own two hands. When I was five he was finally diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and though it was an ideal place for a little girl to grow up, the farm didn’t help my father get better. My early memories are few but vivid, with joy and sorrow in equal measure. I loved the animals around me (we had goats, rabbits, chickens, horses, cows, a pig, cats, dogs, a parrot, seven bee hives and a pond full of frogs!) and when I was older I helped take care of them.

Now I paint animals, revisiting fond memories of my dad and the wonder of growing up on a small family farm. The subjects for these paintings, come from my mother in law, my sister in law, my own animals, and from friends. My work also draws influences from the language of portraiture from the Northern Renaissance and the Dutch Golden age of painting. I want to demonstrate the emotional sophistication animals can have as well as their dignity. I seek not only the likeness of my subject, but also the beauty particular to them.

I have an unnatural love of heights. When I was a kid, I used to climb up onto the counters just to look down. I was mesmerized by how the space that I knew so well, was suddenly transformed by a new perspective. Now as a painter, I love the subtle transformation that takes place when looking at a figure from an unusual perspective. Being up high and looking down takes me outside myself. The models for this series all had a surprising reaction in common. You’d think that they would be tense, to be in a vulnerable position, but everyone became quiet and at ease. I am deeply interested in understanding how we connect to other people through gaze and expression and in this body of work, I’m exploring how subtle details can influence this connection.
