About the Artist
Hi, I’m Gina Stark, the artist behind Starlu Studio. Thank you for visiting my site. Here is a little bit of background about me.
Creating art and crafting was a daily part of life in my childhood. My Nana was a gifted crafter who introduced me to the love of creating. She took the time to teach me how to sew and do other useful crafts. She encouraged me when I attempted to make my own dolls and helped me to create and dress them.
My mother is a painter and always had paintings in process on her easel in our home. I loved watching her paintings come to life before my eyes! These two early influences planted the seed for my love of the arts.
After several years focusing on portraiture and folk art, I decided to start exploring other art medias and disciplines. My latest projects involve working in graphite, colored pencil, watercolor, experimenting with fluid abstract design, and expanding my work in woodblock/linocut printing techniques.
