Abby Montembeau


I’m an artist living and working in the New England area. I earned my Bachelor’s in Illustration from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I’m a freelance illustrator specializing in book, narrative, and sequential art. I love creating compelling narratives and characters with my work. When I’m not creating art, I’m often playing video games or buying iced coffee.  If you'd like to make a business inquiry, please contact me through my work email:  


About My Work

Stories form the basis of human existence. We create narratives and tales to explain things that we don’t understand or want to understand, and through the telling of these stories we connect with one another. My work is focused around the creation and execution of a compelling narrative spoken to the viewer without the use of words. Using characters, objects, and environments, multiple stories can be told from one illustration depending on who’s looking at it. I’m fascinated by the way characters and their environments interact with one another, and how the viewer and the illustration react with one another. I want to make people think about not just the main character of an illustration, but the implications of the environment surrounding that character.
