Harriet Zabusky-Zand attributes her lifelong love of color and interests in
drawing and painting to the early influence of her parents. "My art education
began as a child accompanying my father on weekly sketching trips around beautiful
'colonial' Savannah and neighboring fishing villages."
Seeking new vehicles for personal expression, she learned to weave, and
moved to England and set up a studio. During her stay abroad, she exhibited
her work and executed commissions for tapestries and rugs.
Ms. Zabusky-Zand received a Diploma in Fine Arts from the School of the
Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and a Master of Fine Arts degree from
Massachusetts College of Art. Abstract Expressionism was a major
influence on the work she produced during this time. The sense of
infinite space, luminous sensuous color, and allusions to landscape
allowed for the expression of her Buddhist beliefs and visions as
evidenced in the Light and Atmosphere series of
paintings, pastels and screen prints.
In 1990, she moved from Boston to Cape Cod. Fulfilling a lifelong
dream, a year later she had her house and studio built on the shores of
Long Pond in Marstons Mills. Living by a beautiful lake has inspired
this series of paintings, Faith Like Flowing Water.
Ms. Zabusky-Zand's art has been exhibited widely in the United States
and in England. Her work is included in the Gillette Corporation
collection, the Sonesta Sonnabend collection, the Westin Hotel,
Accenture, Mohegan Sun Casino, Marriott Hotels, the Mandarin Oriental
Hotel in New York, and many other corporate and private collections
in the United States and England.
Harriet currently resides on Cape Cod in Massachusetts and
spends winters in Savannah, GA.
