what (‘s an interesting story behind one?) : I once dropped the tiny round licorice tin. It started speeding down a sloping street. Other people tried to help me...no success - the tin was faster. Jumped even artisticly over a gully hole! That chase ended in someone's front yard! :-)

as an artist, Gabriele crafts beautiful artworks, and they're so affordabley priced! i love a beautiful abstract aceo i own of hers, and i think her excellent use of colour & texture is so very very lovely.
be sure to visit Gabriele's two lovely shops: Emmarts: "to tickle your senses" (as Gabriele puts it!) and Fluur: her 3-dimensional arts.
