Using her art and design – Gabrielle’s depth of knowledge positions her as a creative force and unique voice within an ever-evolving industry.
A passionate creator, one of the ways that Gabrielle Lasporte expresses herself is through Modern Batik (created by applying wax and dyes on fabric).
Through this art form, Gabrielle explores the human experience through both abstract and representational expression by delving into the beauty in the forces of nature that mirrors our lives. She strongly believes in the natural flow; an influential part of her visual and creative identity. Good or bad, life always flows to its ultimate destiny. Her current series reflects on life, emotions, self-acceptance and the appreciation that we are an integral part of the greater eternal flow in a universe that guides us.
Always an artist first, Gabrielle has brought this idea of organic flow to her design practice through her hand-drawn concepts, sketches and ultimately putting out clean lines and effective design which she is known for.
