Gina Gomez is a contemporary abstract artist who specializes in the creation of original, mixed media, abstract paintings. Her creative study and experiementation with various media and materials reveals a careful attention to texture that ultimately brings out the color and depth in each piece.

California-born, Gina Gomez, discovered her attraction to the arts at a very early age when she explored Play-dough and finger-paints. Soon after, her interests quickly expanded into creating visual art and writing. Her interest in oils came about when her mother enrolled her in an art class at the age of seven. It was much later that she learned of her great-grandfather’s work as an artist specializing in fresco paintings in churches throughout El Paso, Texas and Mexico. After a 30-year detour in corporate business, Gina found herself drawn back to her creative calling. With the encouragement of loved ones, Gina began creating contemporary pieces using mixed media. She has had the opportunity to travel the world and her art is enriched and inspired by the earth tones of the Tuscan hills in Italy, the fine packed gravel and stones used to create the Great Wall of China and the densely populated trees in the Black Forest region in Germany. Gina combines these images with intuition and meditation to inspire these one-of-a-kind creations.
