About

Gabbi_Blue

Hola!

I am an Artist, Designer, Educator and “non-reptoid”.

My regular human name is Maria Gabriela Sanchez Mallona. However, I feature my work by MAGASAMA. I couldn’t decide which of my names to go by, so I chose the first two letters of the names I was given at birth. All of these names are equally important for you to get to know me. I was born in Spain, raised in Nicaragua and I have been involved in a love/hate relationship with San Francisco since 2007. My work is my therapy and that is why I have labeled it “Tummy aches and Heartbreaks”.

I am currently working as a Presentation designer at Zendesk.
