Small Stories by Gabrielle Reith
cards textiles apparel personalised jewellery home decor Christmas Commissions


Gabrielle Reith is an artist, illustrator and maker based in Scotland. Her work is the magical world of ‘Small Stories’ where every piece tells a tale. She makes elaborate pen & ink drawings that evolve into beautiful stories based on her & her children’s imagination, infused with traditional tales.

She graduated from Gray’s School of Art in 1998 with an honours degree in Drawing and Painting. Since graduating she has forged a successful career as an artist with work in collections worldwide. Her current collection includes wooden hand painted jewellery, screen printed tea towels, screen printed apparel, decorations, cards and framed pieces.

Gabrielle intends to expand her current collection, building on the success of her story based range and collaborating with other artists. Learning new skills is an essential part of that journey.


All artworks and designs are copyright of Gabrielle Reith Artworks Ltd and have been created by her at her studio in Aberdeen, Scotland. All apparel is hand pulled screen printed and where possible all products are produced in the UK, by as ethical and renewable a resource as can be found. If you would like any further information on materials and techniques then please do get in touch.


"Her brand is called “Small Stories” - each decoration, print, drawing, painting, piece of jewellery, card, home ware, she even creates kids apparel, comes to life in a mini, yet perfectly formed, story. I mean, you just don’t get cards like that in Clinton’s these days"

A few weeks ago I posted an image of a hand carved brooch featuring a Mummy fox and her cubs huddling together under a tree. Titled Fantastic Mrs. Fox the image gained more likes and shares than any I’d posted previously.
