Monthly Miniature, The Children of Artists

I was worried about how I was going to balance motherhood with being an artist, but I’ve been amazed at how well the two are coming together. The Children of Artists is a celebration of those who have taken on this challenge, giving me the courage to have my son while believing it was possible to still make my art. The first painting in the series is of my own son and each of the other paintings will feature a different artist’s child. The Children of Artists explores my wonder at watching someone grow and develop, and loving them more than I could have imagined. I meditate on balancing two great passions. And I thank each artist I know who continues to work, particularly those who manage to raise children at the same time. Learn more about each painting and the artwork their parents make on my blog.

Monthly Miniature, Into the Country

I grew up on twenty acres with all sorts of creatures. When I was still very young, my father was disabled by multiple sclerosis, so my memories of the animals he kept are childlike impressions, images and feelings without stories attached. I remember how it felt to hold a baby bottle tight while a baby goat nudged it and sucked at it, but not why we had to hand feed them. Memories of those days are vague and warm, and bundled up tight with memories of my dad, who also introduced me to art. Today my mother-in-law Margot keeps many kinds of animals, and having animals “in the family” now recalls the warmth and love and endless wonders of childhood.

The second Monthly Miniature series, Into the Country, features animals from my mother-in-law’s herds and flocks (and more). Portraits from the series are painted in a style inspired by the classical Dutch portrait, and continue a mood from the first miniature in the “Paintings of Rabbits” series. The series began as my ongoing Monthly Miniature project, but evolved to also include larger paintings.

I am captivated by the powerful presence an animal can have, even pictured still and without context or movement. The dark background and natural lighting is intended to personify the subject without embellishment, in a classic and dignified mood. In personal terms, the series is also a meditation on memory, childhood, and the power of nostalgia.

Each Monthly Miniature in Into the Country is fitted in a finely crafted custom frame. Learn more about the series on my blog.

Monthly Miniature, Paintings of Rabbits

The first Monthly Miniature series chronicles two large personalities in my studio, rabbits Charlemagne and Eleanor. Paintings of Rabbits takes miniature portraiture to strange, new places. Finding new ways to portray the same two rabbits was a great challenge that became more generative and exciting as the series progressed, with every other painting inspiring ideas for new future work.

For me, painting animals is much like painting people. Seeking the subject’s personality, a narrative, a mood remain steady areas of focus. With each painting, I learn more about these personable yet highly individual creatures, and my own connection to them, at once foreign and familiar.

Each Monthly Miniature in this series is fitted to a unique, hand-restored antique frame.
