Abigail’s work speaks for itself. She is an incredibly detailed draughts(wo)man with a love of nature and how we interact with it and within it. Whether her interpretation is a literal study or a feeling, it inspires us to look more closely – both at her work and at our natural world.
Some of Abigail’s pieces are a nod to vintage scientific illustrations, some leave us suspended in water. All contain the clarity of real life.
“My art constantly changes with where I am in my life. As I have gone through school and changed what I ‘want to be when I grow up’, the inspiration for my pieces has followed suit. The progression of my work has widened the variety of mediums I use from my original favorite, graphite, to paints, pens and markers.”
“When I am not creating art, I am usually in the Smoky Mountains where waves of inspiration wash over me from the scenery. Fly fishing has become an important part of my art because my boyfriend and I are frequently enveloped in it. The graceful nature of the sport and connection between the fisherman and what he/she pursues is something I enjoy interpreting into a visual art.”
“When my compositions began mostly consisting of nature and animals, I started using it as a theme with many different mediums. I believe the best way to find inspiration and gain knowledge is to look at what’s around you. As I continue my education with a biology major, the inspiration will only become greater.”
