Mayela is a global nomad. 

She was born in Caracas, Venezuela and at an early age moved to Mexico City. She holds a MFA in Furniture Design from Rhode Island School of Design, a BFA in Industrial Design from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign  and complement studies from the Nuova Scuola de Belle Arti in Milan, Italy.  This multicolor international perspective is conceivably the source of her ability to come up with creative solutions that go beyond form and touch on more profound issues of culture, usability and sustainability. 

Mayela is currently developing design projects both personally and in collaboration with different firms.
