“Breathing in, there is only the present moment. Breathing out, it is a wonderful moment.” (Thich Nhat Hanh)

*For my next day in the studio, I will be exploring nature “in the moment” with printmaking; printing directly and spontaneously from leaves and petals, then also building a collagraph, or maybe collaging some rice paper prints into a painting. I will see what I find outside¬†that day! For now, I am heading out for an evening walk in the woods.


Canadian painter and mixed-media artist, Susan Neilson is fascinated by natural geometry in micro and macro worlds. Precise realism, calm energy and intuitive abstraction combine in her art. The Pacific Northwest and parks of the British Columbia Interior inspire her current work. She is interested in biomorphic forms and patterns connecting all living systems, as well as the interface between wild and cultivated environments.
