Gabriella Falk - artist


Gabriella Falk was trained as a designer for the theatre and worked in this field designing sets and costumes for a number of years. Her work ranged from the West End to alternative theatre along with several major regional theatres.

Having taught for some years in Further and Higher Education Gabriella then acquired a conventional teaching qualification which has enabled her also to work in schools. She remains involved in education through artists residencies.

From the 1980's Gabriella developed her practice in fine art textiles and established a reputation as a tapestry weaver. She has since expanded her practice to take in other fields and is particularly interested in developing her design work with architectural glass.

In 1993 Gabriella began working as a Public Art Consultant and now spends part of her time in this field and part on her own creative work.

Gabriella has been Lead Artist/Public Art Consultant on a number of building projects involving collaboration with architects, landscape designers and local authorities.

From time to time she also curates exhibitions and has been involved in a number of artist led initiatives such as South West Textile Group and Somerset Art Weeks.

She was co-curator of "Footsteps", a national touring exhibition 2004-6.
