-I like to make things and make people think-
My illustrations are idea-based, as I will research a topic and use that to choose my materials and details. Often, I work metaphorically and like to make my audience look further into my illustration, commenting on an environmental or social issue. I am especially interested in combining my love of mechanical art, installation and puppetry.
For my next steps, I am excited to get stuck in and continue developing my practice. I am interested in working as a model maker in a studio as well as continue tackling live briefs with my unique visual language.
I would love for you to check out my website where more of my work can be found alongside more information about my process.

"Abi's work shows a great inventiveness whether playing with characters, sets or illustration. This is supported by strong 2D pieces which demonstrate an eye for detail and understanding of colour and construction."
