Gisele Bauche combined her interest in Theology and Art by giving expression to her spirituality through Religious Art.

She studied iconography under Marianna Savaryn, Vera Senchuk, Dimitrie Andreyev and Father Nazari Paltaike. Her religious art hangs in institutions and churches across western Canada.
