Gabrielle Trom was raised in the beautiful Midwest in the United States of America. She began formal training in watercolors at the Art Academy in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2008 and continued studying drawing, painting, and sculpture during her high-school years through the Post Secondary Enrollment Option at Bethel University. There she was introduced to a variety of artistic mediums and basic concepts of design. Instead of continuing to pursue her degree after graduating from high school in 2016, she headed across the Atlantic to begin her education in the academic methods of figurative drawing and sculpture at the Barcelona Academy of Art. She added oil painting to her studies at the academy in 2018 and, after she was granted a scholarship from the Art Renewal Center, was able to return to Barcelona to complete her sculpture studies in 2019.
