Gabbi has been drawing and painting for 25 years and teaching art for over 20 years. After training in life drawing & anatomy at the Paddington Art School from 1987 until 1991 under Steve Gorton, Gabbi worked in Barcelona, Spain at the Academia Leonardo da Vinci and Escuela Cristina Blanch, where she taught life drawing. On her return to Sydney, she began to focus on the theme of women in transition and established Pregnant Portraits, where for the last 8 years she has been painting pregnant portraits by commission.
Gabbi has recently completed the illustrations for the book, Sweet Surrender, Celebrating Pregnancy & Birth.
She currently teaches art to children through her company, Drawing Life - A children's art school at South Coogee Public School.
Her paintings are intuitive and explore interconnections between the feminine spirit and the transformational aspects of nature.
