Gabrielle was born in Kent and lives near Faversham. She studied Painting at Canterbury College of Art, then spent a short period in Menton painting the Mediterranean light and colour, which had a formative influence on her work. She then spent three years in the Painting Department of the Royal College of Art, London. For over twenty years Gabrielle was a sessional lecturer teaching Painting on the Foundation Course at the Kent Institute of Art & Design. She was privileged to be able to draw dancers of the Rambert Dance Company, and the Northern Ballet Theatre in class and rehearsals on their visits to the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury. More recently she has drawn in various dance classes at Canterbury Christ Church University.
Exhibitions include works shown in Germany, Italy and the UK, in the Canterbury and Brighton Festivals and most recently at Keynes College, University of Kent, in 2017/18. Her work is in private collections in France, Germany, Switzerland, Russia and the USA.
