Most of y'all know that Abi handles print separations and color-matching here at Bearded Lady, along with a lot of other daily print operations. She is also an active freelancer, providing design and illustration services under the moniker Hoarsefly, and this past year she began teaching wood-burning workshops, introducing creative folks to a process that she loves using in both her personal and client work.

In addition to helping man the Bearded Lady/Decoder Ring screen printing workshop out at the Trans-Pecos Festival, Abi led a wood burning workshop as well.

Abi was selected to be one of three featured artists (along with Jules Buck Jones and Will Gaynor) for The Contemporary Austin's annual fundraiser, Camp Contemporary. She created designs for commemorative patches and bandanas for the event.
She also hosted a wood burning workshop for the event, on the beautiful grounds of Laguna Gloria. Attendees spent the day embellishing slabby raw-cut wooden coasters.
