Artistic Focus – Edna Stoddart studied with some of the finest artists/teachers of the day, and her early work in landscape painting is classically Modernist, with solid, sensual contours and intense colors. She later developed a style that was uniquely her own, creating dreamlike settings populated with brightly colored, surreal figures and animals, birds being one of her favorites. The art critic Miriam Dungan Cross said of Stoddart, “She and her art had an ageless quality. She had never lost the wide wonder of a child.”
