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.
Between 2013 and 2018 Gabbee lived in Melbourne, Victoria, completing a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Arts) First Class Honours at RMIT University in 2016. In 2017 she was a finalist in the Victorian Craft Award and a recipient of the Maggie Fairweather Studio Residency, for RMIT Gold and Silversmithing graduates. Gabbee currently resides in Hobart, Tasmania.
