Essenhigh's work attracted attention as one of a generation of young painters in New York in the late 1990s. Born In 1969, Pennsylvania, she now lives and works in New York.
I went to one of her exhibitions at the Victorio Miro Gallery in April 2008 and was totally in awe of the combination of skill and imagination in her work.  In my eyes she manages to create worlds and characters which aren't so surreal as to be believable.  However I like to believe in fantasy worlds!
