Abbey Bennett is an artist and animator from Calgary, Alberta. Recently laid off from her job, she’s been looking for ways to nurture her creativity in isolation. Her and best friend Kat Jeffery decided to try painting still lifes together every other Saturday.

After the first session, two of their great artist friends, Gwen Morgan and Rachel Zrad, decided to join in.

Abbey is also taking part in Quickdraw’s Chris J. Melnychuk Memorial Scholarship and Residency, and we can’t wait to share what she’s been working on.
