Gabrielle de Montmollin was born in Toronto of Swiss parents. From 1979 to 1986 she worked in television at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and pursued an interest in independent film-making.
In 1986 she decided to focus on her long-standing interest in photography specializing in black and white photography. Since then she has exhibited in solo and group shows in Canada and France.
In her artist statement she writes "From the time I first found my own voice as an artist I have mostly used plastic toys and dolls in staged settings to create 'tableaux vivants' in which I seek my own meanings and invite the viewer to find his or her own. My art is based on imagination and I am interested in story-telling, play and mystery.
