Abigail works primarily with pencil, ink, watercolor, and Photoshop, creating unique mixed-media illustrations.
Her greatest inspirations are fairytales, folklore and ghost stories. The works of Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, the Brothers Grimm, Shirley Jackson, Angela Carter, and many classic gothic works of fiction, such as Dracula and Frankenstein have always stirred her imagination.
Her greatest artistic influences are artists such as Arthur Rackham, Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, Maurice Sendak, Edward Gorey, Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielsen, Harry Clarke, Dorothy Lathrop, John Bauer, Jennie Harbour, Aubrey Beardsley, Yoshitaka Amano, Marjorie Miller, Alphonse Mucha, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and John William Waterhouse, as well as animators/directors Don Bluth, Hayao Miyazaki, Sylvain Chomet, Tim Burton, Henry Selick, and Guillermo Del Toro.
Beginning to show her work in galleries in 2009, Abigail’s work has been shown throughout America from NYC to Los Angeles, as well as galleries in London, Paris, and Madrid.
Her illustrations have been featured in various publications including ImagineFX, Clip Studio, Spectrum Fantastic Art, Art Fundamentals, The Graphic Canon of Children’s Literature, Rue Morgue, and Digital Artist.
She’s worked with DC/Vertigo, DC kids, Universal, Dark Horse, Image, IDW, Titan Comics, Pelican Books, SYFY, Sideshow Collectibles, Netflix Animation, and Disney Books.
Her fully-illustrated picture book, The Cats of Ulthar by H.P. Lovecraft was released in November of 2016, and that same year she teamed up with Universal Pictures and Desert Owl Games to create The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse, the companion game to “The Huntsman” feature film.
Abigail’s tarot deck with author Sasha Graham, The Dark Wood Tarot, was released June 2020, and her latest tarot deck with author Minerva Siegel, The Nightmare Before Christmas Tarot Deck & Guidebook was released in September 2020. Her latest tarot deck, “The Horror Tarot” is coming summer 2022.
