Silk Painting Specialists Share Their Secrets . 


Some People Can be Creative
But Others Find Producing Creative Work is Daunting

It is one thing to find original, creative product
suitable for giving as gifts;

it is quite another thing to find an
affordable range of creative product.

 “......(in Australia) the giving of gifts to international business has traditionally not been particularly good. The Gabogrecan range offered me a perfect solution in that the items are particularly Australian, they are unique, and are available at a price range which allows not only continuity, but also distinction.”
Chris Fenton, Managing Director, Alfa-Laval Spiraflo

There are many reasons to give gifts. Family, friends and loved ones are usually the recipients at such special times as birthdays and Christmas.

Business people are also looking for that something ‘special’ to reward a good client or to make an impression on someone of influence. They are certainly not looking for mass produced items for these types of gifts. But regardless of how important the recipient may be to them, they still want the item to be affordable, not only for their own benefit, but because they do not want to embarrass the recipient either.

Barbara GabogrecanI am an artist and taught art for over 13 years at the National Gallery of Victoria. I get a great deal of pleasure from creating ‘wearable works of art’. We usually think of art work as something to be framed and hung on the wall – and I have done that too, having had 6 sell out exhibitions of my silk paintings. But I wanted the ordinary person to be able to wear with pride, an accessory, that was a real work of art.



I developed a range of silk scarves, where every single one is hand painted, ensuring that the finished work is original. Even if the design is based on one original drawing – the end results have to be distinctive by the very nature that they are executed by hand with free flowing colour.

The gift you have been looking for

It does not matter who you want to give a gift to, you are usually looking for it to have certain attributes:-

  Is it affordable?

  Is it unique?

  Is it appealing?

  Is it of high quality?

  Does it suit different age groups?

  Can you find it without having to spend a lot of time searching?

  Is it light weight and easy to pack? (especially for overseas gifts or ones that have to be mailed)
