Gabbi Lancaster - Artist
I love to create art which captures and expresses the intense feeling and beauty of this incredible time in a woman’s life, celebrating the power of being pregnant.
My art making practice is primarily in painting and drawing. My unifying desire is to explore the full spectrum of human emotions associated with feelings of belonging, connectedness and oneness.
I have had three home births and am passionate about uplifting and transforming our beliefs around birthing. Ever since my first child was born, I have wanted to share my experience and inspire women to have more positive births.
The artworks in this book are from life sessions with pregnant women and are in pastels, watercolour, ink and acrylic paint.
I began Pregnant Portraits in 2004, drawing and painting women in late pregnancy by commission.
