I first saw her work a couple of years ago via some discussion on other pages, and I loved it. So many contemporary artists have eschewed the figure(or moreoever, any evidence of serious drawing ability)in their work, but not she. She does landscapes, still lifes and portraiture. She's worked in animation (I believe at Spumco) but now she's carving her own way as a fine artist-how I hate making that distinction but for the sake of description it at least communicates the milieu she's chosen. We used to comment back and forth a lot but I've been remiss in keeping up, and after getting some nice feedback from her the other day realized I didn't have a link to her blog. So now it's added, and also here.
She's definitely worth reading--I love it when people post about their process.
