“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 middle of it all.”
Abbey is a New Zealand artist and painter whose art is deeply inspired by nature, by people, by colour, by the wonderful world we live in, and from the day to day 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. And that’s what she does now.
“I paint flowers so they will not die.” – Frida Kahlo
