About Gina

Hello!
If you're reading this, I want to give my sincerest thanks for your support and interest in my art and writing.  One of the greatest experiences I've had as a creator is seeing how others respond to and relate with my work.  Art and storytelling have a profound way of connecting people, helping us to understand complex aspects of ourselves and each other and this vast reality we find ourselves in.  I'm excited to share my unique per(speck)tive in the universe with you!

My focus is on Spiritual, Mythological and Fantasy subjects.  All of these interconnect to what I view as the most fascinating realm of the human experience - a realm of dreams and stories, and of the supernatural. Here, we speak a language of symbolism and emotion to express the deepest parts of our nature and to explore the greatest mysteries of our reality.

I immerse myself in this language everyday.  I'm a self-taught artist and I've found that the most effective way to develop my skills is to focus on the heart of my work - the meaning and wonder - everything else I pick up with practice.

Why I need your Help
Your support through Patreon will allow me to create full-time as an artist and to focus on projects we are excited to see completed like my Shibui Zodiac series or my first acrylic painting, Sakura Pearl and the Nightmare Owls instead of taking on commissions or working outside of art.

Your subscription will help me to support myself as an independent artist and to gain access to better equipment.

I have some really incredible supporters outside of Patreon - seriously, without them I wouldn't have gotten this far.  I can just imagine what amazing things can become a reality with your help, too.

LASTLY, what is Patreon and how does it benefit You?

Patreon is here to provide a secure and simple platform for patrons to support their favorite artists.  In return, patrons receive access to exclusive content and rewards or even the privilege to vote with fellow patrons on the projects a creator will work on.

Subscribers to my Patreon are billed monthly.
