Gina Percifull was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and moved to Huntsville, Alabama in 2005. Primarily a self-taught artist, Gina enjoyed art as a child, learning techniques in wood and pencil design from her father who worked in the drafting/printing fields.. Gina has been making art for 30 plus years and shows at festivals and solo exhibits throughout the southern United States.
Working primarily with reclaimed wood, Gina creates brightly colored, quirky paintings and assemblage pieces with a folk-art flair. Additional works in paper mâché and paper mâché clay are in recent creations. Most recent works are inspired by a summer trip to the Grand Canyon, the animals and nature capturing the creative soul wanting to be unleashed in the art. Her beloved pet goats, dogs, and chickens offer endless inspiration for Gina’s work and life.
If you notice a different signature, it is due to a new discovery. Her grandfather seems to have changed the last name on the census in the early 1900’s from Pecival to Percifull. The signature Percival now shows up in fresh artworks over the last 2014 year and will continue.
