Meet AbbyPainterArt by Abby Houston
Born and raised in Portland, OR, Abby Houston lives, teaches, creates art and raises her three daughters. Abby has developed a daily creative practice that has become a necessary and automatic part of developing and maintaining her creative identity. Abby creates community through her personal fine art practice and inviting social media presence. Her colorful and expressive abstract works reflect a sense of calm and spontaneity, fluidity and structure. Abby works primarily in acrylics and is inspired by the natural and internal worlds she lives in.
Partnering with female owned and founded companies is at the top of my list when sharing my work. I wanted to give people an opportunity to engage with my colorful work without feeling like they need to create something from scratch! Sitting down with a puzzle is a creative and constructive process that brings a sense of calm and grounding.
What are you most excited about in becoming a JIGGY Studio artist?
Being able to give my family puzzles with my artwork on them!
What’s your puzzle strategy and ritual?
Edges first & a hot cup of tea! Involving my kids in the process is a must as well!
If you could collaborate with any artist, dead or alive, who would it be?!
Hilma af Klint (Sweedish abstract artist)
Who's your dream guest for a dinner & puzzle party?
Megan Rapinoe (USWNT soccer player, Social Justice hero)
