From childhood Gina dreamed of painting in churches.  She studied fine art, then after raising two sons, she attained a BA in Theology Summa cum Laude from Ohio Dominican University, Columbus OH. 

Gina is a Lay Dominican and the director of RCIA at her Dominican parish, St. Patrick’s in Columbus, OH.  Painting images that inspire the faithful is her way of living the Dominican charism “to contemplate the truth and share the fruits of that contemplation”. 

 In 2010 she began designing Paschal and Baptismal candles which melds her love of the Catholic faith, evangelization and art.

Gina lives in Ohio with her husband Shane, of 32 years.  They have  two sons, two lovely daughter in laws and two darling granddaughters.  They share their home with a German Shepherd and their yard with two Shetland ponies who are friends of  people with different abilities.  sweettreatstaion.com
