Dear Gabrielle, I love the way you portray the animals in so many different ways. I have only recently started drawing animals in graphite, and find it really enjoyable, as you see the animal emerge as you go along. I am a long ways off from your standard, but hope to achieve a much higher standard with each progressive drawing.I agree that the eyes are the most important part of each drawing. It is even easy to talk to "them" as they come to life. Your work is inspirational. Thank you for making it available for all to see. Cheers Carolyn Hall

Dear Gabrielle, THANK YOU so much for the wonderful piece you did on our precious and dearly loved Levi! Our family has such a love for Levi. We honestly couldn`t think of a better way to capture his forever existence in our family and in our hearts than to have a pet portrait of him. We absolutely LOVE the artwork – and it looks JUST LIKE HIM! Thank you again for a beautiful job-well-done! We cannot wait to display our "Levi" in our home. Sincerely, Jackie Jones.

Response by Soulful Images:
Hi Jackie, Thank you for your message! I enjoyed working on 'Levi' and hope you will treasure it for years to come. There's nothing like the love of a pet. Sincerely, Gabrielle

I am so glad to see that you pursued your god given talents in art. I still have the framed golden eagle print 29/250 that you did in 1993. I also thank you for the golf lessons you gave me years ago that greatly improved my game. Eddie Ireland (Austin, Texas)

Hi Gabrielle. It's been years since I've heard your name. I'm Diane's Schmidt (Grubbs) younger brother. You have very impressive artwork. Being an outdoors and wildlife buff makes your work even better. It's great to see you've made it it the art world. My sister and I are both artists too. Keep up the super work.

Hi Stranger, I had no idea you were such an accomplished artist! You're work is beautiful and I've really enjoyed looking at it. Unfortunately I was unable to open several of the menu items, so was not able to look at everything. Great work! I hope we can get back in touch. Your old high school buddy, Diane

Love your website and your artwork! I'm glad to see such a highly regarded artist who also uses Prismacolor pencils!! It shows there is hope for me to one day be highly regarded also. I love that you work on wood as I have. I've only done two pieces on wood, but I love it. Have you ever used Walnut Hollow Colored Pencils? They are made specifically for working on wood. Not as great a color range as Prismas, but nice and buttery soft. A good complement to Prismas. Also, do you get your wood from Walnut Hollow or elsewhere? Again, I love your work! God Bless! Nancy

It's hard to look at the portrait you did of Tails, Sonic and Putter. Now that Tails is gone I look at him in the portrait and feel like I can touch his soft fur. You captured him and we miss him. It brings tears to my eyes. I'm still in a place where I avoid looking at the portrait because it's so beautiful, but hard too look at. You really gave him back to us. Thank you Michelle & Willie

Hello, when I was in fourth grade I began to draw. My main focus was cartoons, of course. Now I am a junior in highschool and am trying to create more serious works of art. The hardest thing that I believe is trying to create your own drawings from your mind. I would always picture something in my mind, but never could put it to paper. I received my first set of graphite pencils for Christmas last year and have tried to create pictures with them. I am using Generals Kimberely Graphite Pencils. This is my first time visiting this site and I am very inspired with your work. Everything is so detailed and perfect, I hope one day to build up my skills to become as good as you. Sincerely, (A fellow artist) Kristina Keeton Ps. i enjoyed your site very much and hope you add more to it in the future!

You have some of the most beautiful drawings I have ever seen, I am always looking for direction on techniques. I draw from time to time and I am in awe of someone such as yourself that can do such detailed drawings.

I love your work. I just purchased your print, "cat nap". My husband and I run a wildlife refuge in Tyler, so of course our house is decorated in big cats, specifically tigers and lions. Do you ever do drawings of animals people own? We have a lion that photographs beautifully and I would like a print of him. I understand you do an original and that's one price, then take prints from that. Just curious. Terri

Gabrielle, I spoke with you at the Houston Safari Expo this last weekend, and I have been enjoying your website. (I was the blonde girl that knew what Prismacolors were, and am also an artist.) Your work is outstanding, and I greatly admire it. Being someone that pays strict attention to detail in my own work, I can truely appreciate the time and effort you put into each of your pieces. I hope the show went well for you, and I look forward to seeing more of your work. Julie Trainor

what beautiful works of art. I have always been interested in detailed artwork. Your work is magnificent. I love the idea of working on wood, it is so refreshing to let the wood do some of the work for you. I just dropped by to let you know I appreciate viewing your work. Thanks again for the opportunity to see your work. Carolyn Hardman

Just hello? How about stupendously beautiful? I LOVE your work Gabrielle! Your style is exquisite, and yes the detail is to die for. Did I tell you how very much I like wood? I am truly awestruck at your skill. I have perused your site for over an hour, just soaking it in, and I'll surely be back for more. My favorites so far are the Tusks Original and Enchantment 1C, followed closely by Enchantment 3C just because I resonate with the rose bud opening, as I have felt during my time on this site. I know that sounds corny, but it happens to be true. Can't wait to talk with you about this! What a multi-talented woman you are Gabrielle!

Hello, Gabrielle. I was fortunate enough to see some of your work on Sunday @ the Crockett Center and I am truly still in awe of your talent/visions. As I'm sure you had several admirers that day, you may still remember me. I was inquiring about having a portrait of my two miniature schnauzers done. I have searched your website, but was unable to get an idea of what you might charge. Not being a wealthy woman, this is an obvious factor. Could you give me some idea of what the price range is? Types and/or sizes? I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks so much and have a great day. Brooke Killen 512.695.0445

Hello, I am browsing your site because I have just purchased some pencils and a drawing pad and I want to begin a series of drawings. I have played a little with this over the years but now am quite serious about learning all I can to create fine drawings and find my own style. Thank you for sharing. Phyllis

Your art work is so beautiful. I am just starting to learn how to draw. I have found that it is very relaxing and theraputic. I like all the different mediums though I think my favorite is charcoal and I struggle the most with watercolor. I would love any tips on drawing a horse- I love drawing animals- and I love Native American art. Once again thanks for your beautiful site. I so enjoyed it!

Hi, I really enjoyed your web site, your drawings are even more than beautiful. The image jumps off the page, I believe the drawing "Age of Innocence" is the best I've seen. every detail was brought out so graphic, your talent is obvious and inspired by the passion exhibited in your art. I have always appreciated the difficulty in drawing with graphite, you capture it with ease, bringing every figure to life. Thanks. Leslie

Hi Gabrielle. I'm just writing to say that I enjoyed the art work very much. We met at a CAS meeting. Your web site is also very complete and easy to use. Who did yours? I've been having some trouble with setting one up. Actually, to tell the truth, I've been having some trouble concentrating on an art form. I work with glass, fabric, canvas and WALLS! Well, take care. Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your site. Beverly
