Internationally renowned, Gabriela has collected many an award for her work. At Sydney Theatre Company, her 2013 set and costumes for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, which featured a steeply raked triangular playing space and incredibly detailed costumes (see below), won the 2014 Helpmann Award for Best Scenic Design, the 2014 APDG Jennie Tate Award for Excellence in Costume Design and the 2014 Sydney Theatre Award for Best Set and Best Costume Design.
