Gina is a Roanoke County, Virginia native. Discovering printmaking, Louthian-Stanley created her thesis works in monotype printmaking and has primarily been a monotype printmaker since 1986. Her most recent works are explorations in using various techniques in Encaustic (hot wax) and cold wax mediums, both of which she uses printmaking techniques to create an 'atmospheric' quality, which are symbolic to her works. Louthian-Stanley's works incite physical sensations, emotions and insights, which carry the viewer into an intimate visual narrative. Louthian-Stanley pursued an interest in continuing her creative endeavors and earned her B.A. Degree from Hollins University and followed by a Master's Degree from Radford University. She has received many artistic honors and awards, has been featured in several publications, and has artworks in corporate and private collections locally, nationally, and internationally. She teaches art at The Studio School in Roanoke, and at 310 Art Gallery in Asheville, NC.
