Following the sold-out success of Domestic Vacations (Radius Books, 2009), Homegrown captures Blackmon’s ever-evolving talent for portraying the tension between the harmony and disarray of domestic life. As Seattle Times arts writer Michael Upchurch said of her work, “Visual jokes and puns are plentiful. But so are family mysteries, childhood psychodramas and painterly richness.”

Included in this new volume are 40 works made from 2009-2014, an interview of the artist by Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon, as well as an insightful introduction by the renowned poet Billy Collins.
