About Susan Tibbon
Artist, farmer, teacher, and activist Susan Tibbon explores the wonders of nature daily, both at the farm and in her etchings, paintings, and sculpture. This image is the letter “P” in her alphabet series of intaglios celebrating the gifts of the land. Of this image, Tibbon says:
A small farmer’s workday is often long and tiresome. Shortcuts that work are always appreciated. This particular mole first appeared in our potato patch several years ago. She must have been very happy with her discovery, and she left plenty of spuds for us. Sometimes a small amount of soil is needed to top off a companion or beneficial plant, and the loose soil from the molehill works quite well for this. This always evokes a heartfelt “Thank you, Ms. Mole.”
Ms. Tibbon’s works are collected internationally and archived in the United States Library of Congress. She welcomes visitors to her atelier by appointment: 415.776.6367, susantibbonart(at)gmail.com, susantibbon.com
