About A.B. Word

Born in Little Rock, Arkanasas, now lives and works in Kirby, Wyoming, on the open range of the American West. Studied art in college, but didn't persue an art career until 25 years later after she had raised a family. Came back to art and drawing in 1987 and soon began a professional freelance artist career in 1989. Tiring with only creating conventional realism and commissioned portraits, she developed a fantasy portfolio in 1993 wherein real people feature prominently in an imaginative reality of her design. She entered the fantasy market by exhibiting in the 1999 World Fantasy Convention in Providence, R.I., which led to a feature spread in the 2002 book edited by Paul Barnett, The Paper Tiger Fantasy Art Gallery, along with many of the genre's brightest stars.

Projects:

Collaborates with her husband, Barrie Lynn Bryant, a picture frame designer, maker, carver, and gilder, to create complete frameworks for sale and exhibition. Since 1999 the couple have kept a rigorous appearances touring schedule bringing original artwork to audiences by exhibiting in numerous juried outdoor art festivals, regional fantasy and science fiction conventions, WorldCons, World Horror Cons, World Fantasy Cons, and the infamous Comic Con International San Diego Artist Alley. The artists cross-over market boundaries by bringing Imaginative Realism to uninitiated audiences at national juried outdoor art festivals, and finely framed gallery quality work never intended to illustrate fantasy literature and other genre related media to cons.

A.B.'s artwork, Long Hot Summer, has just won Juror's Choice Award in the highly competitive "Drawing Discourse" contemporary drawing exhibition in Asheville, NC currently running from Jan. 15 - Feb. 12, 2016. Hosted by University of North Carolina Asheville and juried by contemporary realist Edgar Jerins. A full color exhibition catalogue is NOW AVAILABLE from Blurb Books at the following link: http://www.blurb.com/b/6805264-drawing-discourse?t=1452870620680.
