Artist’s Statement:  “Each object, every thought, has its own energy and frequency. Painting, for me, is a way to capture this essence. It is a dialog between me, the materials and the moment. There is no effort to make a painting be, do, or feel a particular anything.”   M. L. Burdick

Born in New England in 1963, I started painting at age five and stopped when I was twelve. After living in Europe for 17 years I returned to the US and started painting again in 2011. During the period in between my focus was black and white photography.

I am a graduate of Walnut Hill High School For the Arts and received a BA in Art from Manhattanville College in 1985. Both my love of color and the fluidity of the process underpin my paintings. When I am not painting I am pulling a string along the floor for my cat.
