Gina knew from an early age she wanted to be an artist. Her pens and pencils were her constant companions. After recieving prestegious art scholarships out of high school, she became a fashion illustrator. Fashion was a passion but instead of the drawing board, it took her to the "catwalk" where she worked as a model for 12 years. After marriage, raising a family, and a successful career in real estate, it was finally time to get back to her first love.
Her brushes haven't left her hands for many years now, and she has worked to continually grow as an artist, having mentored with nationally acclaimed artists Kevin Macpherson and Andy Braitman. Gina's paintings have been shown in numerous juried regional and national shows as well as solo shows. She is a featured artist in numerous galleries throughout the Southeast and has many private and corporate collectors throughout the United States and Europe.
Well versed in multiple mediums and varied subject matter, Gina creates paintings rich in color, mood and spirit. Recognized by her distinctive style in her popular "Red Umbrella" European and New York cityscapes, Gina loves painting en plein air and traveling when ever possible to new and exciting locations. She works from her studio in Charlotte, NC.
