   We’ve loved Chrissie Abbott’s work for ages. There’s something about her technicolour, trippy work that never fails to draw us in. Her work is mystical and brilliant melding nature, found imagery and alternative realities into uniquely beautiful images. She manages to create instantly recognizable work without it feeling staid or predictable. We could plaster our studio walls with her images and never get bored of it.  Have a look for yourself >
