A Western Massachusetts native with ties to Cape Cod, Abigail Griswold spent two years at Towson University in Maryland as a member of the Women’s Division 1 Gymnastics Team (2012-2014), where she was named an East Atlantic Rookie of the Week, NCAA Southeast Regional All-Around Qualifier, and Scholastic All-American. After an injury made it difficult to continue competing, Abby decided it was time to leave the athletic arena for the studios at The Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, where she could pursue her creative interests and immerse herself in the art world. She is currently studying Apparel Design (BFA) where she finds an interesting way to merge both her passions as athlete and designer. Abby’s artistic vision extends beyond textiles, as she has an affinity for unique expression through collage, fiber, 3D art imaging, and sculpture.
