Abigail Drapkin
San Francisco, California

Abigail Drapkin is an oil painter based in San Francisco. Originally from Maine, she graduated with high honors in Studio Art and French from Brandeis University in Boston and spent her junior year at the Sorbonne and Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art in France. Abigail’s recent works on canvas and wood explore narrative portraiture within modern local landscapes. For her current portrait series, she uses black and white photographs from the early 20th century as reference material. In these works, the natural texture and warm tones of the exposed wood grain influence the mood and composition of the portraits.

I opened this beautiful gem of a painting and was immediately happy I made the decision to order Abigail's painting! The expression and feeling she caught in the subjects in this painting are delightful - her brushwork is beautiful. Thank you, Abigail Drapkin! And ordering from UGallery was easy, the painting arrived well protected.
