Modern, Abstract, Textured, Original
Gina's original, impressionistic, abstract paintings are celebrated for the way they communicate through layers of texture, color and fluidity. Seascapes to Angels, Mountains to Skies- all speak of a different perspective where Heaven and Earth collide.

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." -Pablo Picasso
Gina Parris here and I’m so happy that you stopped by my online gallery.
I paint in abstract and impressionist styles to capture emotions that I feel when I look at the earth and sky. I'm constantly asking, “What is there just beyond the senses?” and “What does Heaven say about this?” In that way, my work is inspired by collisions of Heaven and Earth.
I’m convinced that with the right focus, anyone can tap into a more hopeful reality. It's my goal to strengthen that focus through my art.
I use acrylic paints on canvas or boards. I may pour the paint, use a palette knife, brushes or whatever tools I can find to create the texture I desire. Even though I'm left handed, when I paint, I use both hands equally. Weird, huh?
Usually the painting comes together as I paint intuitively. I think of it as collaborating with my materials to tell a story.
Started with an Angel...
I grew up always drawing, painting or crafting and dreaming of being a professional artist. I thought I might get a Fine Art Degree, but instead, I ended up going to Bible college and working as a youth minister then a mindset coach & speaker.
One Christmas I wanted an angel above my fireplace and I posted the finished painting on social media. To my surprise, orders for work started coming in and with that, a long-buried dream sprang back to life. I realized that our creative callings don't diminish our other vocations, but enhance them!
Here’s to YOUR buried dreams. May they spring back to life and come true as well!
