Hello and welcome!

It's a pleasure to share with you my illustrations, some of which are from books, and others from personal work. I've been working in the illustration field for over 5 years as a children's book illustrator/author. I have worked in the graphic design field for many years working with wonderful clients in the technology, medical, toy, and publishing industries. For more of my design & lettering work, please visit, GabbyandCo.com.

I'm a proud member of the Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Picture Book Artists Association, Pacific Scribes, and Friends of Calligraphy. I paint traditionally in watercolors and gouache, and also create mixed media pieces, as well as digitally on the computer. Nature, and my awesome kids and family inspire me daily and I'm so grateful to be living my dream, painting and creating in the Bay Area. Should you have any questions or inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact me, or my wonderful agent, Nicole Tugeau, at nicole@tugeau2.com.

My very best,
