Her elegant style is inspired by European, British and Latino themes and enhanced by her massive frame choices. Simone Gaubert, was born and raised in the Caribbean Islands). Gaubert, liked to draw even as a child. After leaving the islands to follow her dreams, she studied design and architectural drafting. Gaubert's uncle, brother, sister and father were all painters. Her father started a painting, but died before he finished it. She finished the painting for him and discovered that it was beautiful. and people loved it. Painting quickly became her best friend. For 16 years, Gaubert, painted only for herself and family. Then people started sending her photos images that they wanted her to paint. She received so much interest in her work that she decided to paint professionally. She studied the master oil painters, and studied art history.
Raised by her grandparents, Gaubert's grandfather was very influential in the choice of her subject matter. 'Grandfather, taught me the value of the farmer and 'lowly' worker in the caribbean.' said Gaubert. 'He instilled a respect for the people who work the land, and tend to the simple aspects of our society. I learned how to paint their stories and they seem to connect with people.'
Each work receives specific frame treatment by the artist. Gaubert is currently expanding her work into galleries in the state of Florida.
