MORE to Abigail Bromley Design Than Meets the Eye
Northern designer and artist Abigail Bromley has secured her first gallery commission for a sustainability inspired limited-edition silkscreen print titled: ‘MORE’.
Located in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Abby enjoys working with local artists, creatives, print suppliers/specialists, and galleries and is thrilled to have secured her first commission from Doncaster gallery – Davie Fine Art.
Having worked on a piece of artwork based on sustainability, Abby was keen to source her paper and specialist printing from within the Yorkshire region. Working alongside a specialist Risograph Printer in Nottingham and a Screen Printer in Sheffield, Abby originated an intricate yet bold graphical design, forming and hand drawing the font. Adopting a mathematical and methodical artwork approach to crafting the serif she uses confident angles and lively colour.
Taking her inspiration from the phrase ‘what more can we do?”, Abby says, “The subject is sustainability. It is time to do MORE. We must all ask ourselves what MORE can we do, and how can we educate people – especially children about sustainability? The subject is important, so my artwork is loud. There is nothing subtle about my work!”
Talking about the moment she secured her first commission Abby said: “I have been waiting for this for a long time, so to say, ‘I am a commissioned artist’ makes me really happy.” She goes on to say, “Following years of studying various design courses, including an MA in Graphic Design, coupled with studio experience has enabled me to have my work offered for sale from a fine art gallery and displayed amongst some amazing national and international artists. I feel privileged and immensely proud of myself.”
Having agreed to take the limited edition (one of only 70), signed MORE silkscreen print, Davie Fine Art has framed the print via their in-house bespoke framing service. Impressed by Abby’s work the gallery has also commissioned Abby to produce a card exclusively for the gallery. The unique illustration will feature Tickhill the village where the gallery is located.
Talking about Abby’s work gallery owner Anita Davie said, “It is not often that I am surprised by artists and the work they submit, but I have to say Abby’s work is absolutely beautiful - what a talent she has! Abby’s artwork is incredibly detailed and technically excellent.”
The MORE silkscreen prints are limited edition, two-colour prints, 55cm x 25cm on 300gsm Somerset paper. With only 70 limited prints available Abby is excited to see the first of seventy available in Davie Fine Art this summer.
Established in 1989 Davie Fine Art is the purveyor of a superb selection of original fine art and giftware, in addition to bespoke framing services via the gallery’s own workshop. Located in the picturesque village of Tickhill, Davie Fine Art offers original paintings and artwork by national and international artists.

Abby says, “I am so excited about getting my print in a gallery – it is the best feeling. I suppose I need to start thinking about creating the next one now….!”
