The Flyers Club is a group we created to celebrate people in our community with big ideas and even bigger personal style. We’re here to get to know YOU and share the people, places, and things that inspire you.
This week’s Flyers Club feature is Gaby Martinez. Originally from Texas, Gaby now lives in LA where she recently found ceramics and quickly became obsessed. Her art has become an outlet for her as well as an expression that she hopes makes other people smile.

Hi my name is Gaby! I just moved to Los Angeles, CA from Texas. I will always be a Texas girl but LA has welcomed me with open arms! I recently found ceramics and quickly I have become properly obsessed. It’s become my safe space. I hope to make people smile and feel a tad nostalgic with my doodles. Life is really cool right now, and I just want to share that feeling through my pieces.
