Emerging abstract artist Abigail Custis creates out loud, covering her canvases with thick vibrant layers of color and, at times, any media that may inspire. Her fearless use of texture and color produces work that is unapologetically alive, but that ultimately evokes a moment of emotional serenity amidst the noise of everyday life.
Currently, her fresh use of paint and epoxy resin is making waves in the Mid-Atlantic region. She has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in Washington, DC, New York and Bologna, Italy, and word-of-mouth accolades among individual collectors has her work in great demand.
Inspired by finding art in everyday life, Custis has successfully taken her passion beyond the canvas, creating stunning countertops, custom furniture, backsplashes, even full walls. Her work has also taken on a parallel life in the giftware world; her colors and patterns lending themselves to a variety of applications, particularly fabric, paper ware and trays.
Custis has been featured in ARTisSpectrum Magazine and Coastal Style Magazine's 2017 Faces of Inspiration, and on Home & Garden Television’s Beachfront Bargain Hunt: Renovation series.
She received her Bachelors of Arts Degree from Dickinson College and worked for many years as a professional event planner in Washington, DC. An Eastern Shore (Maryland) native, she splits her time between Salisbury, MD and Onancock, Virginia with her husband and three sons.
