Abby Jacobs was born in Denver, Colorado and has studied art since she could first pick up a paintbrush.  She obtained her B.A. in art, human services and psychology. She continued on to receive an M.A. in counseling psychology and art therapy from the Buddhist based Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.

In her artwork, Abby invites the viewer to come closer. There is always more to be seen but one must often become engaged with the painting to discover what lies beyond the first impression.

Abby works to achieve a balance between an organic process and one that involves meticulous control over the medium. Her work has been sold around the world.

If you asked Abby's kids what they are most proud of about her artwork, they'd tell you that a very famous actress has purchased several pieces.
