Gabriella was born and educated in Poland, but in NZ she has swapped her degree in architecture for a career in illustrating and graphic arts. Over the years she has been collaborating with most NZ publishing houses and illustrating books by many NZ authors. 


Apart from illustrating Gabriella also works as a tutor, does architectural presentations and takes part in various art exhibitions around the country.


She held her first solo exhibition in 2011 in the Devonport’s Depot Gallery in Auckland. Her favourite subjects are people and other living creatures, in all shapes and sizes and in all sorts of life situations. Gabriella uses a variety of media, often combining and experimenting to create texture.
