i’m jealous of jenny morgan

I’m off to Seattle this weekend for GIRL CRUSH {with the lovely Tif Fussell}, so I thought it only fitting to leave you with another girl that I have a crush on… New York based artist Jenny Morgan has grabbed my heart with these hauntingly beautiful portraits. I wish I knew more about them, but alas, I can’t find anything anywhere. Oh well, we’ll just have to enjoy them for their gorgeous detail, their stunning color palettes, and their slightly {or majorly} disturbing beauty… and those hands! I love those hands!!!

    Jenny is one of the top young painters in the US today, based in NYC. She’ll have a solo exhibition opening June 1st at Plus Gallery in Denver, CO, where we’ve had the pleasure of watching her career blossom from day one. If you want to know more about her work, check out her new book on blurb, it’s a treasure worth finding

    Hey, I did an internship with Ivar (saw he
    Commented above). Jenny is awesome. She recently came out with a book of her artwork and has an awesome YouTube interview with Ivar that I believe you can access from plus gallery.com.
