A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Hello, my name is Abigail Featherstone and I am a multi-disciplinary artist, specialising in illustration and painting. Born 'n bred in Whitby, North Yorkshire. A small town by the sea with a big heart. I am a 2021 graduate from Edinburgh College of Art who has returned to my hometown to start running my small business.
Generally, my work is based on atmosphere, community and kindness. My work 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 work, which has helped form my natural quirky and contemporary style.
I enjoy illustrating for editorial, social media campaigns and advertising and I take pride in creating work for clients and businesses whose morals and values resonate with my own.
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 often take on painting commissions to paint the places that mean the most to people, often a family home or family business.
I can proudly say I am an 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.
