Featured Artist: Abby Hartke

The Suzette Brumleve Memorial Effingham Public Library is pleased to showcase the art work of local artist, Abby Hartke.

Abby Hartke has been creating art since the age
of 3 –

“I’ve always been drawn to all the colors of the world and
how they are used in everyday life and with that, how they
aren’t.”

Abby is currently studying art at Lake Land College and
intends on continuing her education at Eastern Illinois
University this fall studying Graphic Design.

She plans on earning a further degree in Fine Arts after
graduating from EIU.

Most of the pieces included here are from assignments she
has completed in her first three semesters at Lake Land

Abby Hartke’s work will be showcased until February 26.
