Wayne Laepple of The York Daily Record reports that central Pennsylvania-based artist Amy Abattoir — who is married to FEAR FACTORY singer Burton C. Bell — has been working on a series of paintings she calls "Driving in the Pennsylvania Dusk." A six-painting preview of the series is on display at Cherry Alley Cafe in Lewisburg.
Abattoir and Bell and their three children (Violet Morning Bell, Atticus Wolf Bell, and Vivian Honoree Bell) moved to Milton a few years ago.
"Your mind can relax and expand out here," she explained. "It's really an affordable high-class area for artists."
Abattoir's studio occupies the third floor of their large home in Milton. It's flooded with light from windows on all four sides.
"This is bigger than some entire apartments I've lived in," she laughed.
"I can work on a painting while the kids are napping," she continued. "I can carve out a few hours every day."
Her husband is often away on tour for weeks at a time, but he also has significant down time when he's home.
"When he's home, he's really home," she said. "We sort of trade time. He works at night, and I work in the afternoon."
