Abby Garrett

I’m Abby, and I love life

I’m a self-taught artist and have been drawing since the day I could pick up a pencil. I’ve designed mission patches and space-related artwork for rocket companies like ULA and Aerojet Rocketdyne, have written and illustrated multiple children’s books and comics, as well as illustrated books for other authors, like Marsha Thauwald.  In addition to art, I have a background in psychology and neuroscience.  I’ve been a performance coach since 2012, am a local STEM consultant in schools, worked with hospital management teams as a leadership development consultant and curriculum writer, served on the Board of Directors for local charities, and am an experienced public speaker. I’m also an avid research geek and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) communicator.  Seeing kids’ eyes light up with awe and excitement is why I do what I do.  I believe art is a powerful way to communicate scientific concepts and ignite interest in STEM-related fields, so I’m working on children’s books right now and love presenting at schools!  In fact, you can check out my latest book HERE.  Feel free to take a look at my portfolio, artwork, scroll down to read more, and connect on social media!  I am currently booking presentations at schools and libraries.  Please contact me by email at abbygarrettart@gmail.com to discuss a possible speaking event at your venue!
