Artist Biography

Gabrielle’s painting career began 30 years ago when she took a part-time job painting children’s murals primarily for hospitals while studying at University.

Three years later, the same year she received her degree in Political Science, her apartment was destroyed in the Northridge Earthquake. In less than 20 seconds, she lost her job and her home. The crossroad that was also created in those 20 seconds drove her to seriously consider what she wanted to do with her professional life. The choice was graduate school or start a mural painting business for private clients. Her love of painting made the final decision, and gave her the courage to start her own business in early 1995.

In 2009 Gabrielle moved to Costa Mesa and had her son a year later. Soon after, she began to shift her focus from murals to commissioned paintings for designers as a way to work close to home. The resulting experience creating paintings in a wide variety of styles and subject matter inspired Gabrielle to create her own artwork.

This collection is the result of that inspiration.
