Gabrielle Gamboa is a cartoonist, visual artist, and arts educator based in Santa Rosa, California. She studied painting and film at California College of Art, and earned a BA in Painting at San Francisco State University. A long-time self-publisher and zine maker, she was a member of the early 1990s Puppy Toss comics publishing collective.
