Virginia, United States
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

About the Artist

Gina is a Roanoke County, Virginia native. You can find her working in her studio most evenings and in the wee hours of the morning. She was born into an artistic family and was influenced by many artist and musician friends and mentors. 

Discovering printmaking, Louthian-Stanley created her thesis works in monotype and has primarily been a monotype printmaker since the late 70'S. Her most recent works are explorations in printing, painting, and mixing media on alternative surfaces with various inks, oils, solvents,  hot wax (Encaustic) and cold wax using various techniques to create the 'atmospheric' quality, which are symbolic to her works.  Each work usually begins without a preconceived image. It begins with a series of random colors and textures, then adding marks and images, often with the use of her hands.  Stanley's works represent the physical and emotional sensations,  which carry the viewer into an intimate visual narrative.

Louthian-Stanley pursued an interest in continuing her creative endeavors and earned her B.A. Degree from Hollins University and followed by a Master's Degree from Radford University. She has received many artistic honors and awards, has been featured in several publications, and has artworks in corporate and private collections locally, nationally, and internationally.
