Gabriela runs Atelier Felice, a design studio focused on creating exclusive colorful patterns and illustrations, mainly working with handmade materials such as watercolor and gouache. Felice has a BFA from FAAP in São Paulo, BR and an MFA from Emily Carr University of Art+Design in Vancouver, BC.

She was born in Australia, grew up in Brazil and has lived in Portugal for the past 3 years. As a designer she has been working in fashion for 8 years. This cultural mix has had a great influence on her work, and she can not characterize herself with a single style. She loves to see her work done in prints, people wearing something she created - she can't get enough of that feeling. Besides drawing, she likes handcrafting, and is always looking for new hobbies. Nowadays she has found in cold pottery a way to relax and be able to do things without following any briefing.
