Susan G. Abbott is inspired by joie de vivre and a love of wild places. Time is a recurring theme expressed as a fleeting mood, a season, or marks on the land. The “Moods in Time” series was created entirely during the pandemic and is an investigation of the rhythms of life that were disrupted by the pandemic.
Susan’s work is informed by the Canadian landscape tradition best exemplified by Emily Carr. She is always seeking to capture the inner spirit of wild places.
