Aloha.
I’m a fine artist painter, master watercolorist and teacher.

I’m also insanely inspired by the Big Island of Hawaii. For over 20 years I’ve painted en pleinair landscapes of this island, finally moving here two years ago to make Hawaii my home.

I paint in an expressive, painterly style with focus on landscape painting inspired by the rich colors and vibrant nature of the tropics.   

I’m passionate about teaching others to tap into their creative experience.  I offer art workshops on the Big Island and Maui as a visiting artist at the Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center.

Painting Workshops and Art Retreats
See schedule: Workshops
I teach painting workshops in Pahoa, along the scenic Red Road on Big Island of Hawaii. Classes include watercolor, landscape painting, alcohol inks, intuitive abstraction, and collage. 

Art Retreats. I offer private and group retreats. I can provide accommodation for one or two people in a cozy, private ‘ohana’ ~ just steps from a beautiful light-filled art studio and close to the famous Red Road.

Art Retreat Testimonial
– Lizzie Marie, Dec 2018
Being with Abbie at her art studio on the Big Island for four and half magical days was both restorative and inspiring. Abbie’s great at planning out ideas and being spontaneous as needs arise. She draws on her depth of artistic study with ease and makes it accessible to bring out the inner artist in those around her. I felt so free to be myself, ask questions, and try out different techniques. I was surprised by my artistic development over just a few days. I highly recommend spending some time with Abbie when you can, either one-to-one or in a magical group workshop. The retreat was exactly what i needed and even more than i hoped for due to Abbie’s humor, kindness, and commitment to creating art. I look forward to spending time with her again!

Share inspiration!
