Gigi Bio

Hailing from Oakland, CA and based in Brooklyn, NY, Bio describes her life as a balance of art and fashion. Her passion for art, photography, and design started at an early age, ultimately creating the lens through which she views people, art, and the world around her. Immersed in the vitality and swiftly evolving nature of New York, her work is a reflection of the people, music, culture, bustling streets, speeding traffic, advertisements, and massive buildings passing by like a heart beat.

My last name means Life.
I am an Artist.
I am a Visionary.
I am a Humanitarian.
I am a Lover, not a Fighter.
I see beauty everywhere.
I am positive for no reason.
I capture emotion.
I aim to inspire.
I am a wanderer with direction.
I go where the wind takes me.
I appreciate process over outcome.
Life is my Art.
