As an artist, my goal is to bring a sense of beauty and awe for nature’s simple treasures with unexpected elements.
Award-Winning, Mixed Media Artist
Gina Wolfrum is an award-winning, mixed media artist who returned to her artistic roots after leaving the corporate world and relocating to a farm in rural Ohio. She instinctively transitioned back to the fine arts training she received in her youth when an interior designer pulled her into the world of decorative art and murals. Since then, Wolfrum has studied in studios around the country to develop her use of color, texture and natural elements. Her mixed media artwork has been featured in books, trade journals, television and various websites.
Walking the line between realism and impressionism
Wolfrum’s initial success came from working on designer and client commissioned artwork. A welcome change of pace, this experience gave her the motivation to further develop her approach and begin experimenting with mixed media art. Intensely inspired by nature, most of Wolfrum’s paintings are a form of landscape or nature setting. She often incorporates unexpected elements like gemstones, crystals, and glass into her artwork.
Wolfrum encountered the greatest breakthrough in creativity when she began using these textural elements. The juxtaposition of paint and stony textures provides her with endless creative energy. Amethyst, rose quartz, tourmaline, and mica are of few of her favorites. Her style walks the line between realism and impressionism and her work shows a refined passion for beauty in design, resulting in art that is timeless in spirit, luxurious in appeal, a feast for the eyes and soul.
Artwork inspired by nature
Wolfrum lives with her husband and a very large dog in Northwest Ohio on a quiet farm surrounded by flower beds and bird feeders. The construction of a large studio on the farm allows her to work on multiple paintings at a time, to paint whenever inspiration strikes and to paint big, as she prefers to create on large canvases.
Wolfrum’s mixed-media artwork using semiprecious stones and crystals have received “Best of Show” and “People’s Choice” awards as well as monetary awards and recognition as honorable mentions. Her successful solo shows are evidence that her work continues to gain popularity with collectors and gallery patrons.
