About Abbie Rabinowitz
Artist: I paint pleinair landscapes and abstract paintings.
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. I use oils, watercolors, and acrylics.

Teaching: I’m passionate about teaching others to tap into their creative experience. Check out my scheduled Online Workshops and Hawaii Tropical Art & Nature Retreat. This year’s sold-out retreat in 2022 was a super success! A fun-filled, creative time was had by all.

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!
