Have you heard of Helen Frankenthaler? I first ran into her work during a Graduate School class on Abstract Expressionists. What an amazing class. What an amazing artist! I’ve had a soft spot for her ever since. Her work is stunning, simple and sensational. And from what I can remember from the class, she was one of the first to experiment with an unprimed canvas. For my class I tried my hand at her style, one still hangs prominently in our house. Here’s a link to more of her work. Amazing. I might just have to pick up my brushes again.

I'm an artist and writer who loves to explore the farmer's market, play in the kitchen, plant vegetables in the garden, wander the aisles of the grocery store, and, of course, eat. My "professional" food training was limited to what I learned while a short order and prep cook at a family restaurant the summer after I graduated from high school. I learned how to crack an egg with one hand, how to make 12 gallons of hollandaise sauce, and how to pull chicken. It wasn't until years later that I realized I love working with food. Now days I spend my spare time planning meals, reading cookbooks and trying out new recipes. View all posts by jenn
