Originally from London, UK, Gabrielle Whiteley has always had a fascination with taxidermy and the natural world from a very young age. Seeing giant dioramas at the Natural History Museum as a child to her keen interest in Biology and Fine Art were definite factors that sparked her curiosity for taxidermy and oddities. The history and the process of taxidermy was what led Gabrielle to teach herself the techniques of the art, which eventually created Owl & Windsor. She considers taxidermy as connection of both Art and Biology and it is this tie that inspires and influences her work. Her work has already profiled on CBC radio, CBC online, Scout Magazine and Vancouver is Awesome.
