Abby truly makes Art for All! Abby Paffrath was born and raised in Breckenridge Colorado. As a true mountain girl the outdoors have always been a huge part of her life. She has been skiing as long as she can remember, she grew up riding horses on her family's ranch, she is an avid flyfisher woman and loves guiding friends down the river in her drift boat.
Her experiences with these sports have long influenced her work as an artist. Staying true to her mountain heritage, Abby chose to attend the University of Montana in Missoula, where she earned a bachelor's degree in fine art in 2003.
During her sophomore year, Abby enrolled in a program that took her to Bali, Indonesia, where she studied the country's art and culture. She immediately fell in love with the beauty and brightness of batik and began training in the centuries old process with a skilled, local artist.
Abby quickly created the idea of creating art for all, then put that art on trucker hats. Art 4 All Hats was born, and soon abby hats were bringing her art into the outdoors that she loves.
Each year Abby and Art 4 All makes 24 unique limited edition artist series trucker hats out of fabrics like wool, corduroy and denim. Twelve hats are released in summer and twelve in winter, with 500 made of each one. We've started to see more of her consistent favorites such as her brown trout pig hat, and her new Strut Feathers Up-Do Women's Hat. Grab your art 4 all hat today!
