Gabbee Stolp grew up in Tasmania. The peaks of Sentinel Range on the way to Strathgordon and the neon beer mug light on top of the Maypole Hotel in New Town were two of her favourite things.
Gabbee's artistic practice exists across several mediums, with a primary focus on contemporary jewellery, object-making and textiles. Her works explore human inter-connectedness with nature, invoking both biological and metaphysical themes and examining the current geological epoch, dubbed the Anthropocene, during which time human impacts on the environment have become indelible.
Gabbee's jewellery products focus on the preciousness of materials from nature and the value of the handmade. The natural and human-made materials used are thoughtfully sourced and reclaimed or recycled where possible.
