Gabriella Makhult

Medium: Illustration

I was born in Hungary, since 2018 I live in the Algarve. I made my degree in printmaking graphics, at the Fine Art Academy in Budapest. Since then I am working as an illustrator and fine artist. I made own exhibitions, puppet theaters, creative paper workshops, and many different kind of art.
Moving to Portugal, my life took a different direction, but still art is my living and passion.

Creating illustrations I take a subject – this can be a text or a song – and give my meaning to it. Illustration adds something to the original idea, usually it comes out during the creation, I don’t determine it before. I think in pictures.

I like the magical way of seeing, how children do. However, my illustrations are not always for kids. The technique of the illustrations is mostly linocut, or acrylic painting.
