Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Abby made her start in the arts at a young age. In 2010, at 19 years old, she founded Reflect Visual Arts, a program reaching hundreds of students through classic fine art classes in schools, homeschool co-ops, private tutoring, and workshops. The past several years of teaching fine art, painting, illustration, and calligraphy, as well as her love of extensive travel and her home city, led to many projects and commissioned works. Most recently her projects included the launch of two colorfully illustrated children’s book and their complementing coloring books: Down in the Ham: A Child’s Guide to Downtown Birmingham and Right Here in Birmingham. Abby now lives and works from her home studio in the small, deep-southern town of Brewton, Alabama, with her husband. They can often be found enjoying the many beaches near their home or exploring their favorite cities while eating so much ice cream along the way!
