lets make the world a more colourful place

Abbey loves to paint.
She is a full-time artist, who paints everyday from her studio in Hastings, NZ.

“I create. It’s what I do, have always done, and always will do because it’s who I am. I paint to make sense of the world around me and my place in the midst of it all.”

Abbey’s art is deeply inspired by nature, by people, by the wonderful world we live in, and from the challenges of life itself.
She is continually exploring her world, through colour, creating vibrant paintings as a result.

Abbey worked as a picture framer for over 15 years, painting in her spare time, until April 2018 when she could no longer put off her dream to paint full time.

She now paints daily from her ‘Back Room Studio’, a converted stock room at the back of Magpie, in the heart of Hastings. Back Room Studio is open to the public and Abbey invites anyone interested to visit and watch her create.

Please send Abbey a message if you would like to see more of her art or are interested in a original piece.
