Laurie Lipton creates massive, intricate drawings using her very own peculiar drawing technique building up tone with thousands of fine cross-hatching lines like an egg tempera painting. Laurie and I talk about how she developed her own method of working- she calls it giving birth to an elephant, her need to say something about what is going on in this world.

She lived in Europe for 36 years, immersed in master art from Michelangelo to Van Eyck when conceptual art and installations were en vogue. Throughout her journey as an artist Laurie was constantly told “you can’t do that”, but her relentless pursuit and belief in herself eventually paid off.
