Gina comes from a long line of artists in South Texas, where she grew up playing in her mother's studio. After studying business at the University of Texas — while also taking art classes and spending a semester painting in France — she traveled the world working for the Savannah College of Art and Design. Gina's watercolor interests sparked after deciding to stay home and start a family, and she has since become known for her custom heraldry and love of all things blue and white. Town and Country magazine named her one of the top 8 wedding illustrators in the country, and her work has appeared in Town and Country Wedding as well as Camille Styles. She now lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, with her husband and their three children.
