The following is nabbed from Baber’s blog:
“German born artist Gabriele Baber has been an artist all her life. Years of study at the University level and study with prominent artists, such as David Leffel, Richard McDaniel, Daniel Greene, Brenda Swenson, Tom Lynch, Robert Burridge, Chris VanWinkle, JoAnna Arnett, Elizebeth Tolley, Greg LaRock and others too numberous to mention have helped to develop Gabriele’s skill level to the proficiency that it is today. With a broad range of study, Gabriele’s work shows a high level of skill in a variety of mediums.
“The award-winning California artist’s work expresses her passion for painting through the use of exciting, vivid color and drama. Whether working in oil, acrylic, watercolors, or pastel, Baber paints with an eye for dramatic color, and expresses herself through her art, painting realistically with an expressionistic flair.
“Those who collect her work admire her ability to capture the essence of nature in her own unique way. Gabriele’s work is found on the cover of the book, Temecula Valley, then and now. Her work has been the signature art for the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Temecula Valley Arts Council, and the Balloon and Wine festival office as well as various locations through out the globe. .Nationally, her work garnered the Reno Air Race Poster and is still the only woman to have the honor of painting the award winning poster.
“As an artist and teacher, she encourages her students to express themselves through art focusing on the process, not the product. Through gentle critique and positive reinforcement, her students are able to find their own style and voice in their art.
“Recently, due to her husband’s job, Gabriele relocated from a long time residence in Temecula, California, to Palmdale, California, in June of 2014, where she continues to work as a freelance artist.”
