This weeks featured artist is Abigail Davidson from Abigail Davidson Art - she has the most amazing collection of art, I adore her bright colours, and beautiful designs. It is definitely worth popping over to see her collection!
Anyway here is her story!
My name is Abigail Davidson. My family and friends usually call me Abby. I have been an artist from day one. From the moment I first picked up crayons, I was hooked on art. I love old-fashioned children’s book illustrations. I graduated in May 2013 with a BFA, drawing concentration.
I’ve learned that trial and error is absolutely necessary to grow as an artist. It’s one of the best ways to discover new techniques and forms to adapt and transform art.
I am inspired by animals, nature, and the natural emotions people share with one another. I am attracted to universal themes that span from different cultures and time periods, almost like the themes you see in movies that connect with all kinds of people—love, joy, wonder, loss, energy, and more.
Listening to music really helps me to get in that “art mood.” Coffee also helps when I’m working early in the studio! I also find going to your local art museum for a day really helps.
I love using pointillism with pen and ink. I also enjoy creating fine line-work with block printing. I love watercolor, print, acrylic, and pen. Mixed media pieces are always so wonderful because there are an infinite number of combinations.
More of my work can be found on my blog: http://abigaildavidsonart.blogspot.com/
I enjoy seeing work from other art bloggers. It’s a great way to learn from each other and see new art.
Isn't her work amazing? I adore her phoenix painting - the colours + textures are just beautiful.
