Gina lives and runs her own open studio/gallery space in Tasmania. Working across media including painting, collage, assemblage, textiles, poetry and photography she conducts one or two workshops each winter.
As an artist that feels unconstrained by process she enjoys working freely across media inspired by landscape, language and a need to establish a sense of place. Bound up in ideas about interior/exterior spaces, windows, vessels, metaphors for transformation she builds on her own history and mapping.
In teaching, she enjoys taking participants at all levels, through stages of understanding techniques and materials to the realisation of finding their own individual voice. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves, question and understand.
