About Gabe Makeig

Gabe Makeig

I’m Gabe Makeig, a passionate artist and writer who finds inspiration in capturing the beauty of the world.

My paintings are created spontaneously in response to my direct experience of Queensland forests, landscapes and creatures which inhabit them as well as the vast human legacy of stories, music and other forms.

I love stones, skies and horizons. I feel sometimes I have to speak through my paintings in order to communicate.

As a profoundly deaf person, I find painting and sculpture are ways I can express myself on equal terms within the hearing community.
