The birth of GabbieMADE
Welcome to my shop, Thanks for coming by to visit. I hope you have found something special to take with you.
You're probably wondering how I came up with the name GabbieMade (and if your not you should be :). Years ago I found a product that shared my initials GAB and I bought a few shirts with their brand on it because I thought it was cool. After that I gave myself the nick name of gabbie. No one really called me that, I just used it in various things I did. I came up with the name GabbieMade a few years ago but never really decided to use it until recently. I also use GAB designs as a business name.
I have been painting since I was in high school, about 30ish years ago. For about 20 years while my children were growing up I owned and operated my own craft business. In the craft business there was no time to paint individualized items. I was such a busy time, I was mass producing everything I did. I have since moved from the so called craft business and started painting more, I really love mixed media art and am continually learning new things.
I also love photography. I'm not particularly fond of photographing people, but I do take pictures for my children and grnadchildren. I would consider myself a wildlife and nature photographer. I especially love photographing moose, I could watch them for hours. I love being in the mountains.
I hope you find as much joy in my artwork and photography as I have found in creating it.
Come back soon
