The Haulover
The Haulover

18x18 inches, oil on canvas (sold) These paintings were all made around 2005-2009 and were shown at Hoorn-Ashby Gallery on Federal Street, Nantucket. These paintings are based mostly on old Kodak family photos, and also a few 8mm films. There is one based on a videotape my husband took of me carrying our first daughter Catherine on the beach. The house we rented was called The Haulover because it’s at the narrowest point of the island between bay and ocean.

Mom Swimming (from Dad's film)

30x36 inches, oil on canvas (sold)

This painting is from a series based on old family photos and films and were shown over the course of 3 years at Hoorn-Ashby Gallery on Nantucket Island. My mom was a champion swimmer as an adolescent after having TB during the war in Holland where she grew up and trained and worked as a registered nurse. My dad made this 8mm film by being out in the bay water beyond Mom taking one of her signature swims. This film from which I pulled stills was made in August 1965, when I was 2 months old and likely napping in a bssinet under the watchful eye of a nanny on the beach.
