She says, "For me the true experience of creative expression has always been drawing; it's a preliminary to what is coming, it's immediate and more direct, which pushes me forward".  Gomez designed the first "Dancin' in the Street" poster for the City of Ventura and a commemorative poster for the dedication of the Ventura Pier. Her artworks can be found in numerous public and private collections. In addition to the many exhibitions of her work, her original drawings have been recognized by the World Business Academy, Year in Perspective, which published thirty of her drawings.
