Featured Artist: Abbey Withington


featuredbannerHey!

Monday is here again, and not only is it Monday but it’s also November 3rd .My mind is still in September, I know this because I continue to write September when it comes to writing the date on anything. Sometimes I even struggle with the year! Seriously, where does the time GO!?

OK. Let’s talk about today’s amazing featured artist/illustrator Abbey Withington. She is an amazing artist with a real keen eye for colour and pattern.

A brand new local shop here in Halifax called Patch Halifax that sells amazing fabrics, as well as offers all kinds of sewing project classes has recently inspired me to think about learning to create surface patterns for fabrics. I stopped in to the shop last week to consult with owner Christina Pasquet about a window painting project (which I am working on today!) and I was so excited to see all the beautiful fabrics her store had to offer. Many of the fabrics were so illustrative, a combination of beautiful lines and colour.
