WORK with ME
I help artists with creative direction to develop their art practice & create beautiful imagery to make their work shine.
Whether you’re looking to get your artwork online and don’t know where to begin; are already a practicing artist but need some tech guidance; or would love some beautiful cards and imagery to be able to share and promote your work...
I would love to help.
What I Offer
Mentoring & Guidance
I offer 90 min UNEARTHING SESSIONS over Zoom. Chose a one-off session or a series of four. Every call is followed up with a recording, notes, and an actionable list. Perfect for finding a new direction, putting together a body of work, or planning an exhibition or show.
This is a DONE~FOR~YOU service to create beautiful graphics and marketing materials for your work. This might be postcards, business cards, or flyers for your latest exhibition or website design and social media management to sell your work online or update your online gallery.
Timeless photography of you and your work in your studio. I use vintage lenses and natural light to create evocative portraits that tell the story of you and your practice. (*Please note this is only availble to artists and makers in the East Suffolk area).

"It feels such a gift to have found Abby. She has managed to restart my creative glow after many years of finding this hard to access.
She really listens, and is able to tune into your interests and what makes you tick as an artist. Her suggestions of ways to get making art again have been so helpful as have her references to artists, materials, books, and resources ~ I have been blown away by her wealth of knowledge which has opened me up to things I otherwise would have not known about.
She is an inspiration to work with."

"I can't recommend Abby enough. As an artist herself, she recognizes the peaks and troughs and will deliver truths and reasons for her suggestions.
Fresh eyes, new input, and questions that lead to discoveries are golden tonic, the tricky bit is finding the right person to work with.
If you're a bit lost in finding your North Star for your business, Abby will help you find it, and fast. "
