Growing up on a farm in Lanseria, Johannesburg, a profound love and appreciation for nature was instilled in Gabriella. Regardless of the various paths of her journey, nature; its space, beauty and everything that it holds has been a constant influence for her.
Having an artistic flare, Gabriella engages with her photography in a very explorative and playful way in which she produces what she likes to call her Creative Art Photography. Using photography as her medium of expression she has produced a large variety in her work, this is done digitally, on film, as well as in the darkroom with various methods and techniques. Gabriella completed her photography studies at Orms Cape Town School of Photography, with a distinction in Creative Photography in 2016.
