Hello beautiful people! Welcome to my imaginary world where I try to express and translate my thoughts and feelings into color and pattern.

I’m GabriĆ«lle Heckenbucker. I live in Maastricht, The Netherlands. I am a mind wanderer, dreamer, a child at heart, I think in color, pattern and shape.

I am a color-consultant by trade, having started my color-consultancy Koloristik in 2000.

I feel the continuous need to create. My number one medium is watercolor, although I might edit my paintings digitally, I love seeing the flow of the paint and see how the colors blend. Rather then working on details I prefer looseness, and expressing myself in colors to record a certain mood on the paper or canvas, the mood I experience the moment I paint. It makes me happy to express my feelings and thoughts into colors, the colors I see, or better said, perceive.

I’m inspired by every days beauty and I enjoy the beauty of imperfection and incompleteness. I follow the process of things coming alive. I would like to share these impressions and treasures of my life together with you.

My artwork is available for licensing, just send me a message to learn more :).

Like my work, this site is a continuous process. Please join me on my colorful journey.
