Abigail McDougall was born in Oxford and grew up in Canada, Italy and Dorset. She graduated from Falmouth College of Art in 2005 and has since been based in Bristol, working from the renowned Jamaica Street Studios. Although she has been selling her paintings since the age of 12, her art career
really took off with her “Bristol in a Different Light” series. The series won her many commissions, including large paintings for Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel and watercolours for the new Ernst and Young offices. Her work has been selected for the Royal West of England Academy Autumn Show and is regularly sold at the Affordable Art Fair internationally. In 2010 her work was short listed for the Urbis Prize. Her latest solo show “Art for Sustainable Transport” in March 2011 was held at the Royal West of England Academy in support of the Sustainable Transport Charity Sustrans.
Abigail’s work has also been featured in many publications, including the Art of England, Clifton Life, the RWA Magazine and the cover of Association of Illustrator’s Magazine. Her work is in private collections in the U.K., Canada, U.S.A., Europe, Australia and India.
