Gabrielle HAWKES

Gabrielle Hawkes lived for many years in St Just, where she owned and managed an art gallery, 'Visions and Journeys'. In 2013 she and her partner, the artist Tom HENDERSON SMITH, moved to St Columb, where she continues to paint.

A self-taught artist, she has described her work thus: 'My paintings depict my lifelong adventures in the country of the psyche, a magical place of forests, lakes, ancient stones and secret hidden places, where things are not always what they seem ...'

Her delightful small paintings are sometimes made into greeting cards. She exhibits regularly with STISA. 

In 2012 Hawkes and Frankie WEBB published a book entitled 'Between the Ocean and the Sky', a collaborative project for which Hawkes created the illustrations.
