Gaby is a native of Germany and has been living in the US since 1980.  She graduated from West Virginia State College with a degree in Computer Science.   Gaby started painting in 1993 and in 1997 she started teaching for the Art Studio named the Opinary.  This was owned by the late artist Terrie Cordray.    Gaby's  thirst for knowledge took her to many parts of the country to study with artists skilled in many  genres.  

Over the past years, she has focused her studies on color theory and creating curriculums for online art courses to share her knowledge with other artists.  Besides theory she enjoys  working  in whimsical art, three dimensional modeling, floral, portraiture, ornamentation as well as many others.

Gaby has been teaching locally and internationally and is also published in numerous publications and has authored pattern packets, e-packets, DVDs and online art courses. 

In 2007, Gaby and four other artists, Susan Abdella, Neadeen Master, Sue Pruett and Donna Richards, came together and launched the first ever online art community of its kind, the Art Apprentice Online, LLC. The Art Apprentice Online focuses on developing interactive online resources for the new artist such as Online Art Lessons and a video rich online magazine.

Charleston, WV is home to Gaby and her family.   You may write to her at
