Gina Fishman Art

Melbourne, Australia

Gina Fishman I was born and grew up in Melbourne Australia. My career began after completing a Bachelor of Education in Art & Craft with major studies in Textile design & Metal Work. With a strong interest in the fashion industry and a special interest in knitwear, I began working as a design writer for Coats Patons . Soon lured to the fashion world of New York, I relocated to the USA and developed a successful career as a knitwear designer. I lived and worked as a specialist designer in New York for a number of years travelling regularly to the Orient and Europe. I worked for a number of companies in the USA including SSG by Catherine lover, Liz Claiborne accessories and later Jennifer Reed, where for many years I had the opportunity to design private label sweaters for many major department stores including Macy's, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, & Lord and Taylor.

On my return to Australia I continued to design knitwear for the US market. I always had a passion for painting, and eventually worked as a full time artist. My art hangs in homes around the globe, but my love for fashion, colour and design inspired me to open my own retail stores/ gallery. I then spent the next 10 years as a Fashion retailer creating Hues Gallery, Melbourne, Australia.

In 2014 after a 10 year hiatus, I returned to my first love, painting. Influenced by the many years I worked as a colourist/designer, my current work reflects my past experiences as a fashion retailer, stylist and designer. Contemporary and varied in subject matter, my paintings celebrate my experiences and observations of everyday life, events and people. I am particularly drawn to water scenes and the joy of experiencing the great Australian beaches we are surrounded by.
