Gabrielle Graessle was born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1956 and has been fascinated by painting and drawing since she was a child. She attended Zurich Art School for 5 years, where she completed a degree in graphic design. Her first exhibitions took place while she was still a student. During this time, she made mainly black and white charcoal drawings spontaneously depicting her personal imagery. In 2015, she settled down in Andalusia. She decided to immerse herself completely in her imaginary world again and to express herself in large format, colored, intuitive and figurative paintings.
