Gabriele is a Canadian artist and musician,
who currently makes her home in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
She grew up in Southern Ontario, where she
worked her way through art college in Toronto singing jazz on the nightclub circuit. Although her major focus was
on painting, she also won the FujiFilm Award for her photography, and was named an Associate of the Ontario College of
Art upon her graduation.
Since then, she has worked in a
number of art related fields including graphic design, teaching and commissioned portraiture. Her portraits and other commissioned
work hang in private and corporate collections as far afield as Kingston Jamaica, Rochester New York, Toronto Ontario the
Netherlands and of course Calgary Alberta, where she has worked for the past 25 years. She is well-known locally as a gifted teacher of drawing and painting for adults and children
through her 15 year association with the Midsun Community Centre.
Along with her artistic endeavours, music
remains an important part of her professional and private life. Gabriele is a cantor at St. Mary's Cathedral
in Calgary, and has released "All is Calm, All is Bright", a CD of her favourite Christmas music.
