Hello and welcome!

Here you'll find my work in illustration as I am currently focused on children's book illustration and writing. I also have the great pleasure of working in the graphic design with wonderful clients in the technology, medical, toy, and publishing industries. Please visit my design site, GabbyandCo.com for more of my design work, as well as hand-lettering work.

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. Living in the Bay Area, nature constantly inspires me, but more inspiring are my kids - they keep me silly and young!

Should you have any questions or inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact me, or my wonderful agent, Nicole Tugeau, at nicole@tugeau2.com.

Thanks for stopping by!,
