Hello! I’m Abby a multi-disciplinary designer & maker.

Throughout my work I combine traditional graphic design methods along with textile techniques and other processes. At heart, I am a maker endlessly creating things with my hands. It is this obsession with tactile qualities that results in finely crafted designs and pieces.

I also enjoy exploring print, typography, book binding, embroidery, editorial design and graphic art. The key to all my work is a high attention to detail along with colours that have been selected and matched perfectly.

I am a hoarder of many collections whether it be fabric, papers, plants, Star Wars paraphernalia, tickets, books or more. All of which I like to surround myself with in my studio for inspiration and idea’s.
