About Juanita

Juanita Gabriel, is an Australian printmaker whose studio is in Canberra where she has lived since 1998.

Juanita’s extensive portfolio of works include figurative imagery influenced by mythology (see Icon in Black below), prehistory (Font de Gaume) ancient cultures and the natural world (Spring Gambol I), that record an enduring, collective consciousness (The Great Indaba I, II and By the Seashore) of movement, grace and beauty (Dancing to the Rite of Spring and Waterfall).
