Gina has extensively studied many forms of art since childhood. Gina graduated from Bauder Fashion College emphasizing Fashion Illustration and Design and then Interior Design. Upon graduation, Gina proceeded to further her education at the University of Texas in Arlington where she majored in Art and Architecture. Gina returned to California and continued her studies at LACC, UCLA, and privately. She has exhibited her Art throughout Los Angeles and worked as a “clean up” animator on national commercials at Wong Studios.
Through her business, “Art Ala Carte”, Gina teaches art privately to predominately homeschooled children, but also to public and private school students in the afternoons. She was in charge of the Art Program “Meet the Masters” at her children’s Elementary School for 7 years, which she restructured and expanded the 12 slides given, to a PowerPoint Presentation consisting of 65-70 works of Art and a lecture that captivated the attention of 700 students. Gina recently joined the staff at “FUNdamentals Academy,” in Monrovia, where she offers Beginning Art, Art 1, and Art 2 classes but continues to teach students, privately and in small groups in the Los Angeles County area.
