Gabriela is a juried artist and grant recipient of Ontario Arts Council. You can find more about her artistic side at http://GabrielaCasineanu.com
Through her art, Gabriela covers topics that help people become more aware of themselves and their environment. She considers the visual aspect of art and coaching as ways to reach out and impact people’s lives.
Her exhibition “Métaphores” (part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival – Toronto 2013) explored this concept. The photographs of this exhibition portrayed her own emotional journey in 2012 with a narrative that captured the different phases of this journey. The photos and narrative are also presented in the photo book “Metaphors” (available online: http://t.co/aOiFj8KODc). Since she loves nature, Gabriela wanted her pictures to reflect human moods and emotions using only nature photography (sometimes changing the original colors to reflect a certain emotion or feeling).
