Gina Strudwick [Biography]

Gina Strudwick

One of our new local artists from PLymouth.

Gina Strudwick channels her artwork into fluid abstract pieces. Her work being striking and contemporary, each piece is unique to there own and cannot be recreated which creates the magic within her work.

Based in Plymouth for the past 8 years working as a colourist in a hair salon, Gina has always been very creative. Initially channelling this creativity into a career as a hairstylist, working happily in many fantastic salons. However, her art teacher's advise was for Gina to have a career in art. this has always been in the back of her mind.

After having her son, she decided to buy some canvases to create artwork for her own home. Since that day, Gina has become obsessed with creating unique and contemporary pieces using different techniques.

"I feel that my previous training as a colour technician has helped me with mixing the perfect tones and getting the perfect colour combinations. I use a mix of mediums including fluid acrylics, full bodied acrylics, mica powder pigments, pouring mediums and resin. I love adding gold leaf and glitter for that special touch. I have recently written and illustrated a children's book which is in the process of being published. I have a massive passion for interior design and have not so long ago worked with the designer on a series of 'diy sos.' I love how a piece of art can have such a powerful impact in a room. I like to use colours that pop within a colour scheme or alternatively, I also like to use more muted and subtle tones to give a more harmonious effect.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I've enjoyed creating them!" - Gina
