Gabriel, a resident of Seaford, Delaware, returned to a career in the visual arts after retiring from the practice of law in Fairfax, Virginia. After many years absence, Gabriel went back to the study of fine art by taking studio courses at The Corcoran College of Art where she concentrated on drawing and oil painting. She was introduced to the etching process by master printmaker William Behnken in Provincetown, Massachusetts and, captivated by the medium, continued the study of printmaking at Discover Graphics Atelier in Alexandria, Virginia. Her present concentration is in limited edition, hand pulled prints, with an emphasis on etchings, aquatints and monotypes.
Fascinated by all things natural, Gabriel endeavors to capture the soul of the creature, person or scene she portrays.
Gabriel Jules has shown at the Alexandria Art League, Loft Gallery and Figaro Gallery in Annandale and Occoquan, Virginia, The Fairfax Art League, Washington Printmakers Gallery in Washington DC, The Rehoboth Art League in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Keepsake Art and Framing in Salisbury, Maryland, and has been in numerous juried shows throughout the United States including The Biggs Museum in Dover Delaware. Gabriel participated in the AMERICAN IMPRESSIONS: Contemporary Printmaking in Lujiazui, Pudong and Shanghai China.

Her work is in The Library of Congress archives and is represented in many collections in the United States and abroad. In May, 2016, her solo show “Transition” was on exhibit at the Washington Printmakers Gallery.
