About

Abigail Rindo is a painter who specializes in surreal work in collaboration with writers, musicians, and other artists. She pulls her inspiration from mythology and modern culture and her work is bright and full of contrast.

Abigail lives with her brilliant physicist husband and two cats in San Jose, California. They are transplants from Wisconsin, blinking in the sun and swearing at the traffic. You can learn more about her at: http://jargonheadstudios.blogspot.com/
