About Me


about-me-drawing

 

Gabriela Vaz Meirelles was born in 1983 in Goiânia (Brazil) and started drawing and painting as a child. At age 10, she developed her first graphite drawings and oil paintings at a studio in Goiânia, where she had the opportunity to study for a year. Having graduated in Biological Sciences, she followed a fascinating scientific career, but ended up pulling away for more than twenty years from another great passion: the arts.

In 2015, in parallel with her research activities, she decided to follow a dream and reintroduce drawing and painting in her life, and had since attended courses and exhibitions in Brazil and Italy. Currently, Gabriela has concluded first and second years of the full-time program of Painting and Drawing at the Florence Classical Arts Academy (Russian Academy of Art) in Florence (Italy) and is working on commissions, personal artworks and projects.

As a painter, she’s driven by observation, imagination, creation and discoveries, and is mostly inspired by people, their emotions, life and nature. With a peaceful heart but an unquiet mind, she’s constantly seeking knowledge, freedom and beauty. Aware of this, after many years, she finally understands that is impossible to separate the person from the scientist and artist she is. Her art is indeed a way to explore nature and the human soul.

 

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

Henry Ward Beecher
