Artwork Statement

I'm inspired by identity and how we use clothes to tell the world who we are, our personal circumstances, and maybe even who we aspire to be. Sometimes clothing can represent a time in our culture and even connect us to our history. Clothes tell fascinating stories.

About the Artist

Celine Gabrielle never expected to be an artist. But then again, she never expected to be a married mother of two living in a small town by the ocean in Nova Scotia, Canada. But she is. Life happens. It also happened when a wrist disability left her unable to keep her aesthetics business going. She had to choose what to do next. She had always dreamt of being an artist. It brought her so much joy, from finger-painting in kindergarten to sketching designs and making clothes, to life drawing in high school art class and now making art every day.
