Get to Know Gabby Coleman
Gabby was born in a “bless your heart, y’all want some sweet tea” town in northern Alabama. Invested in creating since her childhood, dancing, drawing, painting, graphic design and art led Gabby to pursuing a design program after high school. Gabby ultimately chose to take her knack for creating to Kansas State after being accepted to their 5-year Master of Architecture program.
Gabby’s interest in storytelling leads her art and her career aspirations. Creating a series of twenty more-than-life size portraits to stimulate a conversation about skin color on her college campus and a design thesis that investigated spaces intending to promote multiculturalism solidified Gabby’s belief that architecture has the power to be a catalyst for change.
Gabby is excited by the opportunity to work in a design environment dedicated to improving the lives of others and engaging with the Kansas City community. In her free time, Gabby is involved with AIA Kansas City, Women in Design and By Design Magazine in addition to being a Target enthusiast.
