You have your brush, you have your colors, you paint the paradise, then in you go.

Abstract Garden painting

Giclee prints on metal and canvas available.

I paint pleinair landscapes and abstract paintings based on nature.
I’m insanely inspired by the Big Island of Hawaii where I’ve been painting landscapes on the island for over 25 years. I paint in an expressive, painterly style, allowing the rich colors, exotic foliage, and vibrant hues of the tropics to inform my art.

ART RETREATS IN HAWAII: I’m passionate about teaching others to tap into their creative experience.

Being with Abbie at her art studio on the Big Island for five 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.
