Abby Hann Pond Portraits

“Abby Hann is an emerging artist of settler ancestry, born in a small town along Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland. She now lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia where she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NSCAD University.

Growing up in central Newfoundland, my fondest memories are of weekends spent at the family cabin “in the woods”. As Newfoundlanders our love of the woods unites us. In 2018, when the area surrounding our cabin was threatened to be clear cut, the community of Port Blandford came together to protest. Seeing the collective love for this land inspired Pond Portraits a series of hooked rugs using hand-dyed yarn.”

This is the first of 6 pieces we will post over the coming month.
