Gina trained in fine art at both Coventry and Chelsea earning a first class degree in fine art. Originally drawn by a desire to paint, something Gina has truly enjoyed since a child, Gina was increasingly attracted to performance art and combined both disciplines in the 80s with several exhibitions of physical and visual art works. A journey through art direction for television with senior positions at the BBC, Gina returned to full time painitng in 2007 and currently works from her home county of Devon today. Gina has been widely exhibited in the UK and has held significant one person shows in London and Chichester and has 4 of her paintings within the Keble College collection at Oxford University.
Gina's current artworks are as much about absence as they are presence - both in the physical manifestation of her paintings' representations and the emotion that drives her work. A deeply sensitive and focused person, Gina finds enormous inspiration from her beloved Devon coastline, its memories with her father as a young girl and the endless interpretations that it suggests. Her paintings are an exercise in restraint, an attenpt to focus the viewer on exploring their meaning and emotional source. As much is taken away from her painting than is added with constant washing of the canvases to produce a moving and fluid interpretation of the emotions that are stirred by the places she holds most dear.
