my name is abigail.


I am an avid creator and symmathecist, driven to illuminate and nurture evolving connections. My formal education is in fine art and language, and my lust for knowledge and experience has brought me through the industries of manufacturing, education, retail, and technology - as well as through much of our country's wilderness. Through these contexts, I discovered my love and aptitude for emergent strategy and reading between the lines. Over and over again, I have transformed myself so as to better approach opportunity and manifest my values.

I now seek to share that magic with you.

We as a species are moving toward an ecological understanding of our role in the evolution of vast systems. We are grappling with the realization that our culture and governance have often prioritized exploitation, made struggle a necessity, and rewarded heartlessness.

In all facets of my work, I seek to recapture the initial sense of community and possibility which we all carry in childhood, and to breathe life into the values of reciprocity and right livelihood. 


Through my art and my teaching, I engage with the creative process as community healing, expansion of consciousness, and a bridge to a better world.
