Hello everyone!! My name is Gina Smith, otherwise known as Thoughtful Art by Gina.
I am an art school drop out that has rediscovered my love for art. After attending the Art Institute of Atlanta, I realized that I would have a difficult time making enough money to take careof my family, so I was thrown into the world of health insurance sales.
20 years later I have finally decided what I want to be when I grow up.
I am a Mixed Media Artist that creates in all kinds of mediums, Acrylics, Watercolors,Pastels, Markers, Leather and Metals.
I create canvas art as well as prints of most of my items. I also have begun creating Hand Tooled and Hand Painted Leather Cuffs.
My motto is to "Create Art that speaks to your Soul". I want my pieces to provide a spark and make you think for a bit.
My art is continuously evolving so I would love for you visit me from time to time tosee my new creations.
I sell my art and take commission projects through Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/thoughtfulart .
Youcan also visit me on my blog at www.thoughtfulartbygina.com or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thoughtfulartbygina
I will be holding a give-a-way over on my blog beginning today. If you leave me a comment on my current blogpost anytime beginning today through Wed. July 11, your name will be put into a random drawing to win this beautiful Leather Cuff. Drawing will be held and winner posted on Wed. July 11.
Wishing you a creative day!!
