Abigail is an environmental artist, writer, and regular contributor to Inhabitat.com as well as other eco art and DIY blogs. As a mother of twin baby boys, she is doubling her efforts to try to make the world a more sustainable and visually inspiring place for all. Abigail currently divides her time between an urban nest in NYC, an organic farm in rural Italy, and a vibrant, up-and-coming community in Sofia, Bulgaria. When not crocheting with tencel, hemp, or handspun, she can be found gardening and dreaming about her next green enterprise.
