BIO


Gabrielle is a Queer Designer/Artist who spent her early years in Lincoln, Nebraska. After graduation from Lincoln High School’s Art and Humanity Focus Program in 2012, she traveled around parts of Canada before she moved to Toronto; this is where she earned her BFA at OCAD University in May of 2018. Her work  during her time at OCAD has been realized by using plywood with wood tools such as a die grinder, router, belt sander, chisels, acrylic paint and blowtorches. She has used her practice as a vehicle to document a mark, sustain a voice as a record of time. Currently she is pursuing a bachelor of interior design at Ryerson University, class of  2024. Her experience at OCAD has been a jumping off point to further realize her practice in designing spaces through her work in installation. Her focus is in spaces that provide inclusion as well as sustainability.
