MEET OUR ARTISTS
Gia is an illustrator, lettering artist and Skillshare Top Teacher based in Atlanta– originally from sunny Barbados. She credits her island background for influencing the vibrant colors and lush florals & foliage she often incorporates into her work. Over her 20-year creative career, she has worked in corporate graphic design, run her own stationery business, and now focuses on licensing her art to product-based companies. When she’s not drawing for clients or teaching online, she spends her time snuggling her kiddos, loving on her houseplants or digging in her garden.
How did you start making art that empowers people?
To be completely honest, I didn't intentionally set out to create empowering art. Much of my artwork is born out of my own introspection and self discovery. The fact that it resonates with others has been a wonderful bonus!
What do you do to self-care?
I start each day with a little light yoga, meditation and gratitude practice. I also spend as much time in nature as possible when the weather is warm.
