"I work in many layers, often tucking things in or masking something out, sometimes repeating the entire process. It’s completely process driven, an energetic dialogue of responses and reactions. The resulting surfaces are usually thick, marred & textured, and rich with bits and secrets that drive the process, but are often hidden in the end."An Alabama native, Gina currently lives in rural northern VA with her husband and son. She is a self-taught artist working in mixed media as well as encaustic. She has been exhibiting her work since 2003.
