Limited Edition Signed and Numbered
Size 33″ x 39″ Approx
Gigi has been an artist from the moment she was able to hold a brush between her fingers. She studied at Columbus College of Art and Design and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. In 1993, Gigi boldly left a lucrative career as a Graphic Designer to pursue her art on a full-time basis. As this decision left her facing divorce and single-parenthood one can imagine the obstacles she overcame but in her work one can still feel the positive essence of womanhood and the spirit of love.
Gigi’s art is inspired primarily by Romare Bearden, Benny Andrews, William Johnson, Jacob Lawrence, Charles McGee, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso. She prefers to work in acrylics and mixed media on paper, wood, or canvas, but is also adept at watercolor, collage, paper sculpture, stained glass, and airbrush.
Gigi is one of few artists who are able to work across a wide spectrum of cultural images, creating reflections of African-American people. Most evident in Gigi’s art and her personality is her passion. She has an attraction to nudes as subject, and she states, “…the human form is one of the most beautiful of God’s creations.” Gigi feels that the nude as expressed in fine art “…grabs us differently than in other manifestations such as film, music videos, and commercial advertising.”
She maintains her studio in Detroit, Michigan and works every day from mid afternoon until the early hours of the morning.
