Gabrielle created The Pickled Paintbrush out of her passion for painting and colour. The idea came to her as an answer to the question "how can I create a career combining doing what I love and working with people?" She discovered the 'paint & sip' concept which has been taking the USA by storm and decided to bring it to Perth in her own unique way. All the colourful easels are handmade and hand painted. All the artworks you paint at Pickled Paintbrush events have originally been painted by Gabrielle specifically for recreation by you and are based on what is popular right now. There is something for everyone.
Gabrielle has exhibited her own art in various exhibitions and galleries around Perth and has also sold original paintings. The real joy is in the act of painting itself. Losing yourself in the work and forgetting about everything else for a short while is a gift.
"Painting is like meditation. That's what I want people to experience. That's why I do what I do."
