American painter, born in Buffalo, New York. She is known for large paintings of horses on canvases divided by horizontals, verticals and diagonals. She has described these divisions as ‘the main fascinators—there before the horse’. She has maintained that her interest in the horse image is because of its formal qualities saying that ‘it divides right. Each half can hold its own and I can get as much weight out of the back half as I can from the head half’.
