LIEFIE + ARTIST GABI LEE

Meet Gabi Lee, the artist behind these tranquil Seascape artworks, the newest addition to our online store.

Gabi was born in Florida in Johannesburg in 1986, and she relocated to St Francis with her family at the age of six. She later moved to Cape Town where she completed a Diploma in Industrial Design followed by a Photography course at The Cape Town School of Photography. She has been working as a full time fine artist since xxx.

Gabi is a great lover of stories, books, movies, colours, textures, interiors, fashion, and romanticism. A sense of which can be found in her beautiful works, from her very graphic, black and white Chimney creature ink drawings completed in 2014, to her colourful soft Seascapes and new abstract works.

Visi, House & Leisure and Elle Décor Online have featured her work on numerous occasions.

Gabi has a great love for decor and home aesthetics and we find out more about what she gets up to in her spare time…when not behind the easel.
