Featured : Poppytalk and New American Paintings

I had the wonderful honor of being interviewed for two great websites last week, Poppytalk Handmade and the New American Paintings blog.


Lisa Solomon paid a visit to my studio last week and took some great photos of my space for the Poppytalk : In the studio feature, including a few wide angle shots which I've always wanted but didn't have the right lens. Thanks, Lisa!

She asked some great questions as you'll see in the interview. I visited her studio a few months ago so we had some great conversations about our workspaces. We also have plans for trading some artwork, I'm so excited about that! Head over to the Poppytalk site for more images of the studio and a few more of my home.

Just before Lisa came over, New American Paintings blog contributor Ellen Caldwell interviewed me for their site.


Although we couldn't arrange a studio visit, we were able to have a great interview through email. Ellen's questions are wonderful and thought-provoking. Definitely spend some time looking back through her past interviews, great reads.

Besides all of this, I have been hard at work in my studio. I haven't been able to take any final images of my new finished piece, Phoenix for several reasons. Along with the sunny days, which make it impossible to photograph textiles, I lost a crucial part of my tripod! I put it down the other day and can't remember where! But, here is a glimpse of the finished Phoenix as well as the work in progress image of Riverside. Thanks to Lisa, you have some images!

I'll keep you posted with some new images soon! In the meantime, enjoy the interviews!

Just read all the interviews with a cup of coffee by my side. What a nice Sunday morning I'm having! I really enjoyed the sneak peak into your studio and feel motivated to get a grip on my small and humble work room. I've been thinking quite a bit about your land-grabbing series and the larger issues behind. You are very inspiring!

Congrats on the well deserved attention! Quick question -- where did you get that fabulous work table? I love that it has built-in bookcases.

kathrynclark said...

Thanks, @Kim. The worktable is handmade, just a 4x8 plywood board on top of six ikea desk bases. I think they still sell them. My only complaint is the table is too low.

Kathryn! I loved the post Lisa did about you on Poppytalk! I'm so pleased about all the wonderful recognition you are getting. I tried to leave a comment on Poppytalk but I don't think I got by the robot police! I was so flattered that you mentioned me, as I look to you as an example of a truly dedicated artist...especially when I am feeling a bit lazy!
