Abbey Wolin worked in the educational field for 14 years; she began teaching when she was 19 and, while working during the day, studied at UCLA design school at night. Although Abbey never finished her art degree, she continued crafting as a hobby and decided to learn how to glass paint on a whim. She soon "retired" from classroom teaching to paint on glass and ceramics full time.
Although Abbey admits that she is utterly disorganized and her studio is a complete mess, she claims to know exactly where everything is. She calls it organized chaos. Her entire family usually creating or crafting one project or another on any given night: her children believe that her studio is theirs. As Abbey says, "YES, it's sometimes hard as a mom to set boundaries! I often walk the city streets in my paint splattered clothes and beloved smock - and that's ok!"
When she is not filling orders for stores or creating personalized custom hand painted pieces for customers, you can find Abbey crafting away in her studio.
