Gabriella Quiroz is an Omaha-based artist. Her work has been featured in numerous group showings throughout the city of Omaha and its surrounding areas. Gabi works primarily in oil paints and colored pencils developing works of symbolic imagery through flora and fauna.
While she notes her education in the arts to have begun from a very young age, her formal education took its roots at the University of Nebraska Omaha. Here she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a minor in Art History. Throughout her term of study here Gabi was awarded multiple scholarships and recognitions for her work.
For Gabi the Holidays such as Halloween, Christmas and Dia de los Muertos played important roles in her childhood and hold meaning for her to this day. This, in part with her upbringing and experiences alongside other creative people, has led her to study symbolism and how it differs from society to society, throughout time.
Her work continues to involve these subjects heavily and as a result it is expanding into exploring more with these mediums.
