Although primarily a portrait artist, Gigi's latest collection expanded her focus from solely portraits to include a nautical and nature collection. Born and bred in Bushwick, Brooklyn, she is moved by the bleakness of New York City of the 70's with its haunting Black, White and Grays. Many works are in charcoal, stressing the lines, flaws, light and shadows while her bright acrylic work has definitive characteristics one might see in a sketch.
Her work has been shown in galleries in New York and throughout Connecticut. She has participated in several national juried art shows receiving awards for her charcoals. Most of her work is privately commissioned.
Many of her works are donated to local non profit organizations focusing on animal care, rescues and education. Her love for all things equine has become her recent obsession, and charity of choice. Half of all proceeds from her Equine collection will be donated to equine rescues. Half of all proceeds from her Jelly collection will be donated to the The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk.
