About the Artist: Gina combines her love of illustration with her love of creating one-of-a-kind fiber art pieces. Her wall hangings and decorative pillows often feature her illustrations and digital images, applied directly to the fabric. She works with acrylics, inks, colored pencils and natural dye (like rust, tea or local plants) and embellishes with beading, embroidery and miscellaneous "found objects". She uses primarily cotton fabrics, but also may use sheers, silks or uncommon materials like tanned elk hide. Her pieces are very tactile and visually interesting.
