'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 and welcome to my website! I'm Abigail an Illustrator and Potter from Whitby, North Yorkshire on the North East coast of England. 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. After college, I studied Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art. 


Now, I am the Artist in Residence at The Geall Gallery in Grosmont, North Yorkshire. I lived next door to this gallery for 10 years of my childhood and it's my dream come true to say I now work here.

I create in a range of different ways including painting, pottery and digital illustration.

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

 

Since joining The Geall Gallery, I learned how to frame my original paintings and prints. All my frames are hand-built and lime-waxed. Although, my prints and paintings can always be put into different frames.

 

Back in 2019, I used to make and sell ceramic earrings. I loved working with clay so much that it led me to start potting in November 2021. I love creating bright, happy, colourful crockery. My pottery work is always in small-batch collections as I can only do it a couple of times a year.

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