With her commission works Gabriella offers gentle and respectful insight as she explores what you want to have conveyed in your commissioned work of art.
'I love working with individuals, creating their commissioned works of ar to commemorates a special moment in their lives; and to see the great joy and emotional response when I unveil their painting'.
Gabriella has been a volunteer at Waiheke Hospice the past eight years and supports Mercy Beyond Borders.
Her paintings have been described as 'sacred', 'restorative' and 'beautifully compelling'.
For art buyers and enthusiasts, a visit to Gabriella's studio gallery is a journey of discovery to a tranquil, inspirational sanctuary; a place to immerse in the quiet reflection of the land and to experience this in relationship to the art itself. Nestled on a pastoral hillside above the coastal views of Church Bay the studio along with adjoining home and gardens is a haven against the sea surrounds.
The physical beauty of her surrounds is a foundation of Lewenz’s work, and continues themes she has explored over the last twenty years ... the fluid, intuitive, ethereal and spiritual are conveyed through her process. This organic approach to art-making evokes the lyricism of the natural world, whilst acknowledging the role of the random, haphazard and chaotic.
