Abigail is an artist based out of Richmond, BC, where she grew up and still resides. She has had a passion for photography since she was 11 years old, and through learning and help from mentors she was able to major in photography at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Abigail’s practice, since at ECUAD has focused on mental health and family issues. The imagery she conjures can come in many formats and styles, from staged to documentary. Her work comes from a personal place, yet is also able to reach a broad audience, since the topics she explores are endured by many people. Her work begs you to look inwards, at your own experiences, or connect with those you are close to, who may be dealing with similar issues.
