Gabriela Folador was born and raised in Brazil and since she was a little girl, her passion for drawing, art and design were part of her life. During her teenage years she participated on exhibitions and competitions exposing her art (drawings, graffiti) and her skills with the pen and paper naturally led her to be interested in the architecture world as the years passed.
In 2011 she started her studies in Architecture and Urbanism in the Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas in Brazil where she earned her bachelor´s degree in 2016. During this time, she was able to put in practice her skills working on residential and commercial projects on architecture offices in Brazil. Also during this period Gabriela was approved and selected to participate in an academic exchange program in the University of Seville in Spain, where during a whole year she was able to travel throughout 16 countries and see some of the most important architectural works in loco in addition to all the knowledge acquired during her academic program.
Gabriela has recently moved to the United Stated and joined the highly talented Artefact team to support with her solid background and skills.
