Born in Rhode Island and currently based in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley, Edlund admits to being excited by the natural world and its inhabitants. This excitement is, in turn, expressed through her paintings.

“The natural world compels me to explore it, delve deeper into it, and use the tools at my disposal to paint some frisson of my visceral connection to it,” she further explained in a piece she wrote for Artsy Shark. “All of my work is a communication between me and you, inviting you to create your own narrative within the context of the art and to experience the art in a positive and satisfying way.”

A master painter known internationally and collected in Canada, England, Germany, France, Italy, and the United States, Edlund is represented by galleries in both the United States and the United Kingdom. In October 2018, she was a recipient of the Dutchess County Executive Arts Award for Individual Artist that recognizes an individual residing in Dutchess County [NY], whose achievements in her discipline are widely recognized and who has demonstrated a compelling or unique artistic vision.

“I find creative stimulation in unlikely places, such as a city street bathed in glistening, late-day light following a rain shower,” says Edlund. “Such stimuli are the seeds from which ideas grow.”
