Her passion is creating crochet sculpture, costumes and anything whimsical, colorful and challenging. She began crocheting at age 8 when her grandmother taught her to make hats for newborns. Gina was not introduced to patterns until earlier this year; she honed her crocheting skills with nothing but her imagination and passion. This has helped her form her unconventional approach and find the perfect outlet for her creativity as an artist. She recently learned to read and write patterns, is further exploring new sides to the crochet and knitting world, and continues to learn and be inspired.
