A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Hello, my name is Abigail Featherstone and I am an artist, specialising in illustration, painting and potting. Born 'n bred in Whitby, North Yorkshire on the North East coast of England. I am a 2021 graduate from Edinburgh College of Art with a first-class degree in BA Illustration.
I have been drawing and painting my whole life. From a young age, I knew I wanted to be an artist, it has always been my dream career. After leaving school I did an extended diploma in Art and Design at Middlesborough College where I experimented with many different disciplines but truly found my love for painting and traditional media.
Generally, my artwork is based on atmosphere, community and kindness. My artwork is also centred around landscape and architecture. I enjoy exploring bold and bright colour schemes and a range of pattern and mark-making techniques within my art, which has helped me form my naturally quirky and contemporary style
A large amount of my work is based around selling and exhibiting original Acrylic on MDF paintings of Yorkshire landscapes, especially Whitby and surrounding areas. I love taking on painting commissions to paint the places that mean the most to people, often a family home or landscape filled with memories.
I am the artist in residence at The Geall Gallery, Grosmont, North Yorkshire. I lived next door to this gallery for 10 years of my childhood and it's a dream come true to say I work here alongside Chris.
