     Gabrielle Strauss 

     Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.
     -- Pablo Picasso

I was born and raised near Vienna, Austria, where I started my first formal art training in oil painting.
Over time, I became acquainted with and experienced in a variety of mediums. After moving to Canada, it took about 12 years before I was able to finally pursue my life long dream of establishing myself as an artist and taking time to paint.

I love to experiment. In my paintings, you will find a variety of styles and techniques, most of which will show my commitment to bold, vibrant colors and textures.
Experience with several local art groups led to a preference for acrylics: I find this to be the most accommodating medium for experimentation. I paint many different subjects but repeatedly find myself drawn to forest and garden scenes and foreign landscapes. Some of my inspiration comes from European travel and experience.
As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the prospect that with every fresh canvas the Artist has opportunity to produce a new and unique creation.
I also work as a professional face-painter and balloon artist, known as “Mrs. Picasso”and “Frilly Lilly the Clown” specializing in face and body painting for both private and coroporate events.
I am a member of Arts West and the South Delta Artist’s Guild and offer private Arts classes from Kindergarten to Grade 6.

Creating art is therapy for life. I hope you enjoy my art.

“Paint as you like and die happy!” (Anthony Hopkins)
