Gabriella Wyke is an artist who was born and raised in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago where her passion for art was first discovered and developed. Only later in her teenage years was she introduced to photography when she and her family were posted by their military to Toronto, Canada in 2010. There, she took her first photography class and learned a variety of photographic processes that were both film and digital based.
In 2017, Wyke moved to Atlanta, Georgia to pursue a photography degree at Savannah College of Art and Design. At SCAD, Wyke's perspective on art and her photographic practice was completely transformed when she was met with professors and colleagues that challenged her way of thinking and approach to her craft.
Wyke later graduated in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Photography from SCAD and now works as a freelance photographer and digital designer in Trinidad and Tobago where it all started. Some of her most recent work is centered around social issues of racial prejudice against black men and gender based violence against women in her community as she believes in unity and equality of life for all.
