Abby has enjoyed a long career in the arts through her studies at Art Schools all over the United States including San Francisco and New York. She currently lives in rural Maine and exhibits and teaches on a regular basis. Abby does not like to limit herself to one media of expression and is constantly fueling her creative process by infusing her creativity into a range of art-making processes. Currently Abby works with egg tempera on paper and Sinopia is excited to share her latest series of works.

Abby Shahn says of her current series:"I have returned to working in egg tempera on paper. I love using the pure pigments again. The colors are so seductive, especially the blue pigments. Linseed oil darkens them and they lose their glow. Using the pigments again reminds me of having a visit from some old friend who has been traveling for many years. We pick up the conversation where we last left off."
