Meet Abi - the Doodler
Lover of ham, doggos, graphic design and of course, doodling.
Growing up in Toronto, Canada, I was that shy little kid in the corner always making arts and crafts.
I loved the idea of helping people and went to university to become an art therapist. But due to struggles with my mental health, I dropped out after one semester. Here I was creating all of these pieces to help people, but I wasn’t even helping myself!
Feeling outcast, lost and confused, I sought professional help and continued to use art and doodling as an outlet. I also started to create custom portraits for people as gifts and they absolutely loved them.
8 years later...
I’m happily working full-time as a brand and web designer. So yes, I offer web and brand design services, but I’m also a digital artist with a passion for creative, emotion-driven design with a playful and minimal style.
Looking for something more custom? I also take commissions!

Why Shop Abi Doodles?
Oodles of Abi Doodles is a shop that offers playful, unique, minimalistic designs with meaning - promoting positivity through handmade goods.
All featuring original designs, graphics and typography by yours truly!
Throughout history, art has been known to bring forth feelings and emotions. It’s how I've been able to express myself since I was a child (btw I highly recommend putting your children in art classes). And I put a lot of meaning and emotion into every piece I create.
That being said, I’m definitely no Picasso or Monet. But I do love doodling and cute-sy designs. And I wanted to create a space where you can own your love for playful, cute-sy s#%t without the fear of being judged.

Art and doodling got me through some dark times in my life. So as someone who truly believes in the power of healing and expressing through art, I love what Scribble Me Silly stands for.
