Collection: Gabrielle Strong

Gabrielle Strong completed her BFA at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, BC. Her practice is split between paintings, ceramics and public art. Prior to attending Emily Carr, Gabrielle spent five exciting years travelling to over 70 countries on all seven continents by sea on a luxury cruise-liner, leaving her with a deep connection to the ocean. Those years at sea have left their mark and coupled with twenty years living on the Pacific West Coast, she is forever drawn to themes of water and reflection, which occur throughout her art practice. Inspired by the ephemeral beauty of moody coastal skies, through her paintings she seeks to capture the quiet sense of calm those overcast days evoke.
