Abigail Tulis is a sculptor based in New York. Gathering concepts and techniques from her independent studies and travels, she is inspired by classical modes of thought and creates work informed by traditional architecture, Renaissance ideals, medievalism and armor. She has held an artist’s residency in the Netherlands, works in the Met’s copyist program, and has studied in sculpture and armory collections across Europe.
She began her training in sculpture at age 15 in Chattanooga, Tenn., under Cessna Decosimo. She continued her studies under Jiwoon Cheh at the Grand Central Academy in Manhattan. Meanwhile, Abigail spent a summer as a Hudson River fellow in landscape painting and studied design and architectural rendering at the Institute for Classical Art and Architecture in New York. Architects and interior designers have commissioned sculptures from Abigail, and an image of her along her work was featured in Vanity Fair. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Tennessee, and the Netherlands.
