Gabriela Aguilo Firehammer is an Argentinian painter based out of the San Diego area who immigrated to the US in her youth. She began her professional career as a designer in the fashion industry and later devoted her time to stone sculpture.
Currently, Gabriela works in gouache and encaustic on a body of work of abstract inner landscapes. While the images are influenced by her travels, the feeling is far more ethereal, meditative and dreamlike. She strives to balance the image and create a sense of movement that is symbolic of her efforts toward an evolution of consciousness, a vertical and forward push for growth.
