"An optimist is a person who sees only the lights in the picture, whereas a pessimist sees only the shadows. An idealist, however, is one who sees the light and the shadows, in addition sees something else: the possibility of changing the picture, of making the lights prevail over the shadows" Felix Adler     

 

Light and water take center stage in nearly every Lynn Abbott composition.  Actually that isn't surprising.  As the only daughter of an oceanographer, Abbott lived in coastal and sunny communities for most of her growing up years. But her connection to sun and sea reaches much deeper than that. 

 

She explains, "As a cancer survivor, I find myself drawn to compositions that feature both water and light because each reflects hope and abundant life.  For me, both celebrate the power to overcome life's shadows.  And I am passionate about sharing that hope through my art.”

 

Both an award-winning artist and freelance writer, Abbott has an international background; she has worked in both the United States and Great Britain. Her art can be found in international, national and regional venues.
