Amarah K. Gabriel

Amarah K. GabrielSince graduating with Honours in 1976 from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, Amarah K. Gabriel has painted passionately. Her work has been purchased by by art collectors worldwide.

Amarah became interested in children's need for expression creativity while in art school and taught children's art classes while implementing many new educational ideas. Later, she painted from deep within her psyche while tapping into her spirituality as she explored women's issues, personal development, healing and the human potential movement.

In her 40's, she found herself living on the west coast where her environmental and eco-consciousness grew, painting images of wild women protecting the forest, spending time in Clayoquot Sound.and published her art on tree-free paper through Green Goddess Productions.

Later moving to Salt Spring Island, she found herself working with Community groups to raise money for environmental and human issues including painting masks of Owl, Raven, Woodpecker, Cougar, and Newt for use in the Save Salt Spring Women's Calendar. Proceeds were used to buy land that was under threat of clear cutting by a development corporation.

Amarah's partnership with Timothy Raven Hume of Artangels led them to do the Can Buoy Mural for the Salt Spring Harbour Authority. It has created awareness of the benefit of public art for the whole community. It marks the entrance to Centennial Wharf in Ganges and features orcas, salmon, cod, an octopus seals and other marine life, as well as a Coast Guard cutter and kayaks. The mural depicts what would be seen on and below the water near Salt Spring Island. They will soon be working on the Butterfly Mural at the Island Saving Credit Union Parking lot on McPhillips Ave.

Amarah and Timothy have also have opened their studio / gallery Dovecote Gallery at 270A Beddis Rd. They are on the studio tour map, #36. They can be reached by email at
