'The best part of my job is creating art that resonates so much with someone they'd want to put it on their wall and keep it in their home.'

 

ILLUSTRATOR & POTTER

About Abigail Featherstone

Hello, I'm Abigail an Illustration artist and Potter from Whitby, North Yorkshire. 

Edinburgh College of Art BA: Illustration graduate 2021.


I'm the Artist in Residence at The Geall Gallery in Grosmont, North Yorkshire. I lived next door to this gallery through my childhood and it's my dream come true to say I now have a studio space and work here full-time.

I usually create bright and bold landscape paintings, primarily of the North York Moors.

My paintings are mainly acrylic on hand-cut MDF canvas boards. I also regularly take on painting commissions, often of people's family homes or places that mean a lot to them. 

I also create digital illustrations, often of dogs. I love creating colourful art that makes people smile. I also love creating art that sparks happy memories and associations with a person's favourite place, which is often one of my favourite places too.

I started working with clay and producing pottery in 2021. Similar to my painting and illustration work, I love creating bright, happy, colourful crockery. I take pre-orders on my pottery as I always work in small-batch collections.

You can find my work in The Geall Gallery (Grosmont), The Horse Shoe Farm Shop (Egton Bridge), The Whitby Bookshop (Whitby), The Abbey Tearooms (Whitby), Beck Isle Museum (Pickering) and here on the website, underneath 'Shop'.

If you have any questions or requests please feel free to get in touch.
