Abbey says: 
"My husband and I moved to Wyoming shortly after we married, and we both fell in love with its stark prairie beauty and sunsets that fill the entire sky. After 8 amazing years and 3 amazing kids later, we moved back to Minnesota to be near family.

The culture, slang, and rhythms of both ways of life pulse together through my veins and find their way into my designs.

This design honors the dogwood trees that pop up everywhere in Wyoming’s landscape. I love their reddish contrast against the barren beauty on the high prairie."
