Gaby’s Medium:
printmaking (solar plate etching, embossing, collagraph), drawing and painting in oils

Her work is influenced by the flora and fauna of Aotearoa – a feast of images and colours. Observing nature’s smallest details, she is inspired by its shapes, forms and colours.

Other work includes:

Illustrating fairytales collected by the Brothers Grimm – timeless reflections of basic human fears, beliefs and emotions. To give justice to these tales she learned the art of bookbinding.

Fairy Tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. G.K. Chesterton

Her work is held in private collections throughout Aotearoa and Overseas.
