Barbara Harvey Abbott

I am a costume designer and technologist based out of Salt Lake City, Utah.

The clothing and accessories a character wears help tell the story of who they are; giving hints of their ambitions, fears, motivations, and other important - while sometimes subtle - details that come together to create realistic and believable people.  I enjoy working with the director and actor in creating these character choices. I strive to understand people; why they make the choices they do and what inspires them.

When not working with costumes, I enjoy reading, traveling with my husband and daughter, and delighting in food, family, and friends. I also collaborate with my husband, actor and playwright, Ben Abbott.
