Gbaby™ took root in the early 90’s when Sylvia’s teenage daughter, Giovonnie Samuels, who was an actress on Nickelodeon’s All That, was looking for a handbag to wear to an awards ceremony. Sylvia’s creative spirit took hold and in the spring of 1999, she painted her first Gbaby™ handbag. It gained instant popularity with the mothers and kids on set and within no time she was spending all her time as “set mom” painting handbags and shirts. Little did she know it would be the first step into her artistic career. A first step that would spand 15 years. With an artistic individuality all her own, artist Sylvia “Gbaby” Cohen, founder of Gbaby™, purposes her art as an apparatus built to inspire, encourage, and spark motivation in all that encounter each one-of-a-kind piece. Sylvia continues to stay true to her signature by creating visual eloquence in every bold and powerful image of a woman she paints. With its exclusive hand-painted handbags conquered, the Gbaby brand has launched into a new medium to expand the collection still with hopes to edify all who see.
