Born and raised in sunny California, I studied Graphic Design and concentrated in Illustration, receiving my B.S. from San Jose State University. I’ve worked as a professional lettering artist at American Greetings, Inc. and then moved to Arizona to work at various design firms and finally back to the Bay Area where I started Gabby & Company, my design/illustration/lettering firm. I’ve had the joy of working with fabulous clients in the tech, design, medical, toy, and publishing industries. Currently I am working in children’s illustration and during my “free time”, I am often found sketching or brainstorming ideas for picture books. I am continually amazed and inspired by the creativity that flows out of my children; the beauty of nature; the generous communities of the lettering and illustration fields; and my wonderful family and friends.
