Edie is represented by Luis De Jesus Los Angeles and Office Space SLC French Canadian writer Yves Theriault exclaimed at meeting me at age fifteen, “nice material!” I did not understand what he meant. I knew he had written Agaguk, a rare Inuit novel, and I wondered how the daughter of a hardware store owner could be of interest to such a writer. Agaguk hunting seals (!) in the vast tundra. Edie selling nails in Montreal? Today, “nice material” is all I see in people I met. My paintings are these encounters. I collect characters, a person’s mood inspires me, a demeanor, or a soft look, humor, imperfections, nose, and posture. And to bring things full circle, the melting permafrost in the tundra is a huge concern I have. I approach painting as an impromptu performance, and my process is uninterrupted and immediate. I apply long, congruous, and sequacious brushstrokes, confident in the short ad-lib articulation of my thoughts about a character through paint application. Often working in thematic suites, I weave an emotional thread across several paintings, mapping out social space’s ambiance and my protagonists’ ever-changing moods as I storyboards my way through night clubs and theaters, galleries, and across exotic, fantastical, and melting landscapes.
