Meet Amber Gabelich
“Even just seeing other people’s work amazes me.”
Meet spray painter Amber Gabelich, winner of the 2018 BBM Youth Support Awards for Trades.
Amber’s passion is for old vehicles, including cars, bikes and trucks. Specialised skills in air brushing, pin striping and custom fabrication are therefore among her learning goals.
Although she is eager, Amber also understands that becoming one of the best in her trade takes time and she hopes to slowly build her knowledge; from understand the basics to developing the “overall picture”.
Humble and bubbly, Amber would like someone to take her under their wing so she can learn the process of custom painting from start to finish. A recent WorldSkills Medallist, Amber strives to follow in the footsteps of her mentors and teachers at the Kangan Institute and hopefully one day have someone follow in hers.
We are excited to watch Amber’s journey in the States as one of the BBM Youth 2018 Trade Awardees. Already a favourite with the media, we expect to see her face pop up around the world.
