“Todo tiene remedio, menos la muerte”


About the Artist:


"My name is Gaby, I’m from Gage Park and I’ve been living in the southwest side of Chicago my entire life. Back in college I used to draw and paint but got to a certain point where I wanted to do something a bit different. I eventually got inspired by those Mexican embroidered blouses on display at the Mexican abarrotes shops. So I picked up a needle and thread and began embroidering flowers on felt sheets. My work went from making crappy patches for friends to getting commissioned to embroider on shoes & clothing and making custom artwork on hoops."
