The multi-talented Abby Butler is the artist behind colorWIRED, a collection of art focused on big ideas, drawn as focused vignettes. Her inspiration comes from music, gaming, science and even dialogue. Much of her art focuses on angelic faces of women and girls along with other elements of nature and space.
Many of her pieces have an art nouveau feel to them with a dreamy modern twist as shown by her piece entitled: "Starships" (seen below).
Her career as an artist started very young and she's expressed that growing up, she explored many forms of art including dance and tailoring. With the help of a friend in high school she became more serious about drawing and becoming a fine artist.
In an effort to branch out, Abby has decided to perfect her skills in drawing flora and fauna. She says, "I think I'm going to learn to draw birds and flowers and hey! I really like drawing flowers, I think I might be in love with botany. I think I'm gonna study botany so I can know science and use that to draw nature better."
While being critiqued is it's own challenge, community thought and art for the masses presents another challenge. When asked how she might advise people in the community to better understand or engage with art, Abby plainly says that since everyone's experience with art is different, she can hardly advise anyone how to engage with it. Her suggestion is, "...to be open to ideas and concepts that you wouldn't otherwise look for. Don't prefer an art because it's hyper-realistic, prefer an art because you like it. Don't make cut offs simply because a label appears."
