about

Inspired by her South African heritage, Gubby started drawing animals and tribal patterns when she was only 4 years old. As she matured, her art evolved developing in to more complex surreal illustrations reminiscent of Salvador Dali and Dr. Seuss illustrations. In college, she discovered her love of metals and welding. Whilst still drawing and printmaking, her larger than life sculptures have taken her work to new dimensions. After graduating, Gubby traveled around the U.S. searching for a new place for inspiration. After dabbling in the Venice Beach street art scene, Gubby currently resides in Joshua Tree, where she creates her steel sculptures, jewelry, and paintings.
