Be Brave in paint - let me inspire your practice

join my free membership and take one of my courses!

Art Courses & free group

If you're a budding artist who wants to feel braver and more confident with their art then one of my courses could be perfect for you.

Visit to read all the details for Ignite Your Art which is a self paced recording of a live 4- 6 week course that takes you through creating a collection of intuitive art (I chose to focus on landscapes).

You'll also see my in depth Experimental Still Life course which will inspire you for life with modules taking you through the fundamentals of composition and a wide variety of different approaches to still life that will inspire you throughout your career. I also discuss ways to make money from your art.

I use acrylic paints in all my courses. From 2023you have access to the courses for as long as I run them. You are able to message me privately anytime with questions relating to the course you are working on.

I have a free membership on my course platform which has a weekly tarot read, artist tips and tricks and colour palettes to inspire you. You don't have to be taking a course to be a member. All members can post and ask me questions in the free group! Join here.

I started my teaching journey on Skillshare and you can see my classes FREE here for a whole month!

Student Testimonials


  • Just love this class! It’s progressing in a way which allows you to think and process what you see and hear. Full of inspiration, not only technical info. Thank you Gabriella!

  • There is something mesmerising and heartening about watching Gabriella paint. We hear her thought process, watch the decision-making, enjoy the ebb and flow, see the development of the paintings, and experience the highs and lows. By doing this it helps to galvanise us into action, and inspire us to work on our own paintings with a similar sense of fearlessness

Mentoring & Human Design

My mentoring style is conversational and informal. There is no minimum amount of sessions that you must book.

You can book me for half an hour or an hour and as often or as infrequently as you need.

There is no availability for these sessions until mid February but if you'd like more information please use my contact form below and I will send you details and put you on the waiting list.

I have invested in human design training so this is something that can be touched on in our consultation. For a more in depth report please book this at - subject to availablility. These take a while to put together!

Podcast & You Tube

I spoke to artist and entrepreneur Margo Tantau in 2022 about my journey to becoming a full time fine artist and potential future plans. It was so fun!

In 2024 I'll be making more content for my You Tube channel. Catch a few gems there now... not sure how long I will keep my rant about being hacked on there so catch that before 2023 if you want to see what happened to me. A cautionary tale.
