Gina Buzby - Coastal VA Plein Air Artist

Gina Warren Buzby loves living in the East Beach area of Norfolk - the southern coast of the Chesapeake Bay.  Originally from South Carolina, Gina has traveled, lived, and painted around the world. Through her B.A. degree in Art and Illustration from Columbia College (SC), she began a career in Graphic Design and Advertising.  Later, she entered the field of Higher Education Administration and also earned her Masters Degree in Education from Clemson University. Becoming a military spouse enabled her to return to her love of art and teaching while moving and traveling. Some of her favorite locations are Italy, Hawaii, Australia and Cuba.

Today, Gina has focused her interests toward the continued development of a varied yet cohesive body of artwork.  She takes advantage of entering shows and competitions, and plein air events — and has won many awards.  In addition to her own creations, she appreciates and welcomes the opportunity to paint personalized artwork for clients by commission. Gina utilizes her education background by offering customized, private art lessons to adults and to children (12 and over).

In her artwork, Gina enjoys capturing dappled light, soft colors and the “painterly qualities” of the impressionistic brush strokes -she combines theses interests in her representational and abstract work. She equally enjoys the water media (watercolors and acrylics) as well as oil painting (both studio and plein air).

Gina works out of her carriage house studio in East Beach and is proud to be a consistent exhibiting artist in local galleries / exhibits—you may follow her on Facebook and Instagram (Gina Warren Buzby Fine Art) or visit her website.
