Bachelor's of Science in Art Education
- Indiana University -
Abbi grew up in the foothills of Southern Indiana. As a child, she had an innate love for all sorts of creatures. She spent whole afternoons carving miniature paths in the moss beneath giant Oak trees to make walking trails for beetles, trimmed the lawn with scissors so as not to harm any slugs, and for most of her young life, was aboard the back of her fuzzy childhood pony. When she couldn’t be outside with the animals, she was manifesting their characters into artwork with any medium she could get her hands on, filling notebook upon notebook with animal sketches.
After graduating from Indiana University, with a Bachelor’s in Art Education, she spent her days teaching painting classes to kids of all ages. She now lives on a farm in the mountains near Asheville, North Carolina and spends most days sprawled out in a sun patch, creating whimsical paintings for The Paint Bug.
