I just learned the sad news that artist Jeremiah Goodman passed away at home this morning. I was lucky enough to meet Jeremiah for a profile on the blog and to photograph him for my book. Below is part of what I wrote after meeting him for the first time. It was really interesting to […]

While the White House private quarters by Michael Smith in the December 2016 issue of Architectural Digest is getting all the press, it was the very chic Greenwich Village apartment of artist Jack Pierson that struck my fancy. In the article, Pierson said, “I decided that I wanted it to look like an apartment that […]

An Artist’s Abode

As I mentioned before, I love when homes I’ve visited are featured online since it gives me the chance to see all the other rooms in the house.  Such is the case with California abode of artist and designer Lulu deKwiatkowski featured on One Kings Lane. I photographed Lulu and her studio space for my book […]

I’ve been having serious post-Paris depression since returning from my trip.  While London was fun, Paris will always have my heart.   I’m more resolved than ever to spend a few months there next year, especially since it will mean having more time to explore.  I did however manage to see a lot on my […]

It’s cold again in New York and what better way to escape the weather than by visiting a museum.  I can’t wait to visit the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum for Color Moves: The Art and Fashion of Sonia Delauney which runs through June 5, 2011.  This show epitomizes one of my favorite blog topics which is how art, […]

Photographer François Halard recently had an exhibition which was compiled into an accompanying book entitled Visite Privée.   The collection of photographs of artists and their studios include Cy Twombly, Julian Schnabel, Carlos Mollino, Ahn Duong, Richard Avedon, Paul Cezanne, Robert Rauschenberg, and others.  My favorite space is of course Mr. Hallard’s own home in Arles, France.  […]

I’m not the only who is smitten with Sag Harbor. Artist Paul Rafferty, who currently has a solo show at the Grenning Gallery, spends time painting plein air on the East End and has captured the beauty of the beach as well as everyday life around town. The small studies are taken back to his […]

I am loving the new J.Crew catalog that features seven New York artists photographed wearing J.Crew clothing in their studios! The online version, Open Studio, has interviews with all the artists and more shots artwork and studios. My favorite question of course is “How do you think art and fashion influence one another?” Their answers […]

Artist in Residence

The only good thing about riding the subway to work in the morning is that it gives me 15 minutes of quiet time to read a magazine. This morning I was reading the July/August 2008 issue of New York Spaces, which surprisingly enough came from the Bachelor. Neither of us have any idea why he […]

Bethesda Fountain, Central Park, New York I’m always in awe of artists who are capable of evoking the feeling of a particular place through their art, especially those old-school artists such as Julian Barrow. When the invitation for his upcoming exhibition at W.M. Brady & Co. in New York crossed my desk, I thought his […]

I’d never heard of Hunt Slonem until I read the most fascinating article about him, Southern Gothic, in the New York Times. Mr. Slonem is a New York artist whose passion for art and mansions is also chronicled in the new book “Pleasure Palace: The Art and Homes of Hunt Slonem.” The word eccentric was […]
