“I live to make art because art is my freedom. When I paint and draw, I’m home.”
Gabrielle Sichel grew up in rural Connecticut. In 1989 she graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University program. She has done post-graduate work at both the SMFA and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Throughout her life, Sichel has seen the process of art-making as a necessity. She is a three-time scholarship recipient for the the Medicine Wheel Artist Retreat, and has received a fellowship to attend The Vermont Studio Center five times. Though painting and drawing have been a constant, Sichel works in an expansive variety of mediums culminating in the publication of several artist books, site specific installations, wood carving and a current focus on fiber art based pieces.
Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally, and has been featured at the Margaret Bodell Gallery in New York and at the Berenberg Gallery in Boston. Sichel has been the subject of many interviews with and has had her work reviewed in the Boston Globe, Arts Media, and the Boston Herald.
