Abby Hersey

I draw things. I make things. I love coffee.

 

Abby Hersey is a designer by day and a mess-maker by night. Whether drawing, painting, sewing, or wood burning, she draws inspiration from the beauty in ordinary things. When Abby's not in her studio creating something or out collecting souvenir bourbon bottles, she's likely hanging off the side of a mountain or falling out of a whitewater raft with her adventurous family.
