About

At gsmcreates you'll find individual, handcrafted pieces; made with love.

Welcome to my shop! I'm Gabi, a teacher who lives in Brooklyn, NY. I've always been interested in art and creating things, since the time I was a child. My mother, also a teacher, had me doing arts and crafts projects from the day I could grasp. She, along with my artistic (graphic designer) father instilled in me a love for being creative and trying out new things. They always encouraged me to do what I loved and was passionate about. (thus being a teacher.) I've painted and drawn for many years and have found it to be a calming and enjoyable outlet. I've always like to push the boundaries with my artwork but I've found over the years that I have never been truly consistent as an "artist." Often I might spend weeks with one medium only to stop for months before picking it up again. I always want to create but the demands of a busy NY life always seemed to get in the way.

After the passing of my father in January, 2016 I realized I needed something to do to take my mind away from my thoughts, and rather use it to create again-to do something my dad would love and that would honor his memory, in a sense. I had stumbled upon many Instagram accounts of fellow weavers and decided that was what I wanted to try next. I made myself a loom out of cardboard, bought a plethora of yarn and thus "gsmcreates: weaver" was invented (February 2016). Now, several purchased and handmade looms later, MANY more skeins of yarn and a wall decorated with weavings, I believe I have officially become that title.

I adore weaving. I find the more I do it, the more creative I become, the more risks I take and the more I continue to fall in love with the process. I began this shop mostly as a way to make room for this growing obsession. But I also hope to grow a deeper appreciation of art and creativity. A great deal of thought and planning go into every handmade piece and new ideas are coming to me everyday. To share my love with you out there is just a lovely bonus. The idea of creating something for someone to enjoy and love as much as I do is a dream I never thought I would have but our lives are great like that. Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop, for reading my story and for the encouragement to keep doing what I love.

Follow me on instagram @gsmcreates, I'd love to keep the conversation going and meet more people who also share a love of creating.

xoxo
Gabi
