I wanted to share with you an amazing woman, friend, photographer and just a force of life. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Matilda http://www.matildemontanari.com and we have become fast friends. Her and her partner Andrea are the lovliest people I have met in New York in years.
I will be working with her a bit before their return to Italy, to live in Bologna. I hope to also be showing with her at the end of May in a small exhibit. More to come soon, working on some new paintings...

paper and paper

I know I have been quite bad with the posts recently but work has been crazy and then I had  a little accident which has put a minor spanner in the works for me. Lets just say bikes and cars don't work together very well.
Anyhow, I have this new work that I did with Pernille Pederson www.ehmanagement.com
we were just mucking around with idea and materials and this is what came out of it. It is a beautiful collection of photographs that we created. I am so excited to put them up here!
The move is over in less than 2 weeks and then things will be easier and my oldest daughter turns 11 this friday and I am wallowing in my own self pity that I am YES, I am get getting old.....

away in Big Sky Country

I have been away in Montana again. It was tremendously beautiful and inspiring to be there again. The sky is big and beautiful and the mountains tower over everything not crushing but rather expanding the feeling of space and your ability to breathe freely. It is a magical place and the people there are lovely and full of bright energy  and great humor. 
I will be moving in a few weeks to a new space in Brooklyn. It is a beautiful old loft in Ft/Green/Brooklyn Navy Yard area. It is in an old chocolate factory. I can not wait to get in there and get working on some new huge paintings. The space is wide open with big windows and big old wooden beams. Check it out! I will be posting some pictures of Montana later today as for now I am actually on my flight home and need to see my beautiful girls. I have missed them a lot these last few days.

those were the days in London

I am cleaning through my piles and boxes of paper and I came across some photos of an opening night for one of the shows I did in London at "egg". This place was so amazing, developed by Maureen Dougherty, one of the most amazing women I have ever known, it was an old dairy in 3 seperate buildings. It was on Kinnerton street in Knightsbridge. So beautiful and stylish. I felt very lucky to be a part of what was going on there.  The parties were famous! we would be out all night in the street, the amazing chefs from the river cafe would come and cook for everyone on the cobblestone streets where we were all dancing and drinking wine. Everyone was quite fabulous! So Maureen gave me many opportunities to create things for the shop, but then she gave me the entire building at 69 Kinnerton and here are a few shots. I even made the aprons for the girls working the show for me. They were sewn by me and then painted and there were branches twisted into the fabric like a nest. It was so much fun! I miss those days. We need to bring that sentiment back!

new friends xx

So as I had said in the beginning of all of this, the blogging world is a new venture for me and one that I really frowned upon unknowingly! I now quite enjoy the interaction with people here and the art community that is out there. There are so many amazing talented people out there and I have recently had the pleasure of meeting them out there on the big old interweb!
I got a shout out from the awesome blog " Tell You Today" by Genevieve Dellinger an awesome DJ and amazing creator, designer and inspiration! her personal work is here : http://genevievedellinger.com/ and the blog above is awesome you should sign up for sure. Here are a few pictures from her recent posts and her own website. I am looking forward to working with her in the near future!!

lovely springtime

I have been riding my bike all over Brooklyn with my girls this week it has been so lovely. The magnolia trees are blossoming adn they smell divine! I wish magnolia stuck around longer, they die so quickly.
I have been working a painting for someone this week which I just finished friday and am excited to give to her monday. I hope she loves it as much a I do.
Here are 2 new paintings I worked on the other day, smaller works on paper. I found this amazing grey paper which I always love to draw and paint all over in white. it is nice to see the white lines pop out on a darker paper. I think that color combination and contrast is beautiful!
