Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Gabriella Collier studied at Sheridan College for four years, graduating from the Art Fundamentals and Illustration Programs. Upon graduation, she created illustrations and design work for a number of leading commercial studios in Toronto. At the same time, she maintained her studio at home where she would produce her own art.
Collier now dedicates herself to painting in her studio full-time. Her work is location-inspired and transformed into atmospheric and ethereal paintings. She uses acrylic mixed with different mediums, and she experiments with abstract methods to create unique pieces. Her work has been included in a number of exhibitions throughout Ontario.
