Abigail Bartell is a native Vermonter currently residing in the Northeast Kingdom and has been making art for as long as she can remember. She works in watercolor and gouache, bookmaking, collage, bike tubes, graphic design, and sculpture. Abigail received her BA in Art Education from Johnson State College (now Northern Vermont University), and her MA in Art and Design Education from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She has been teaching fine art to middle and high school students in Danville, Vermont for the past 13 years.
Abigail’s style combines her love of drawing and painting with a deep appreciation of the whimsical and quirky, and she loves to cause curious confusion with her art. Her art business, Abigail Bartell Art, offers original art, graphic design, original prints, one-of-a-kind bike tube jewelry, and commission work, including personalized location and interest “maps.”
Abigail lives in Danville, Vermont with her mathematician-fisherman partner, four exuberant sons, two dogs, two cats, and a variety of fowl. When she’s not painting or teaching, Abigail is cooking up delicious healthy meals from her garden, spending time with her kids, promoting community art, exploring quiet lakes on her paddleboard, and reading as many books as possible.
Abigail is a long-time member of the Vermont Art Educators Association, The Vermont Watercolor Society, and the No Such Thing as Too Much Art Society.
