Abigail Lake is an artist based in Bromsgrove. She first started her University experience at Aberystwyth School of Art before transferring to Worcester University where she found she could be more flexible with her work which lead Lake to explore new mediums. Lake found solace through pointillism, which has led her to create a variety of portraits, some of which focuses on The Vailed Vestal Virgin a marble statue carved by Italian artist Raffaelle Monti in 1846. As well as other vailed statues, Lake focuses on the obscurity the vail offers as barrier between the subject and the viewer.
