About us

Colouryour.life was founded in 2015 by Gabriela Himstedt. Gabriela has a wealth of knowledge and over 25 years’ experience as a professional artist and has been teaching since 2011.

Gabriela was born in Germany but spent a lot of her childhood in Italy where colour and beautiful surroundings were an inspiration in her art. She has a degree in painting, drawing and sculpture which was obtained in Germany.

Gabriela has a passion for art and founded colouryour.life so she can share her vast knowledge with others in a fun and relaxed environment and guide their artistic skills to create a master piece.

“I get much satisfaction teaching art to both beginners and the more experienced. It’s great to see the progression of creativity develop so quickly whilst having fun”.

Gabriela's qualification, experience, creativity, flair and passion for all things art are apparent in their work and teaching. Whether you are a novice or an experienced artist, you will learn something new and walk away after a class feeling inspired.

Colouryour.life runs classes and workshops for all levels of experience for both children and adults and offers private classes and bookings for team building events. Classes and workshops are held in two great locations south of the river in Ardross and Balcatta.
