Born in 1963 in Teufen (Canton of Appenzell) and a Ticino citizen by adoption, Gabriela Maria Müller is essentially self-taught, although she attended the School of Applied Arts in St. Gallen. A further formation in occupational therapy expanded her technical and artisanal range in painting, sculpture, 3D, textile, installations and video. Her artwork has been acquired in public collections, including Canton Ticino’s, as well as private collections. She has exhibited in Paris and Venice in 2017, at the Villa Pia Museum (Erich Lindenberg Art Foundation) in Ticino, in Porza in 2016, and at the Vincenzo Vela Museum in Ligornetto in 2019. Her profound and sensitive connection to nature, nurtured by her rural surroundings, provides her with an inexhaustible source of inspiration, visibly reflected in each of her artworks. Her meticulous arrangement of natural elements (seeds, leaves, blooms, pollen and soil) produces new and sophisticated forms when juxtaposed with the structure where they originated.
