Gina Matarazzo is a designer of books and paintings. She occasionally hides chocolate like a squirrel (meaning, she doesn’t always remember where she puts it). She loves details and secrets and stories and everything about the creative process, especially the challenge and the hard work.
There are hidden secrets, wonders and joys of the world right under our noses every day. Gina enjoys creating art that celebrates the things that are often overlooked and taken for granted. When is the last time you really looked at the sky or the sprightly little rabbit in your yard? What does that dog of yours dream about? She believes everyone needs to slow down and pay more attention to what’s going on around them. With a little creative license, she aims to show you a magical way of looking at ordinary things.
Gina lives with her illustrator husband and cats Gwendolyn, Cecily and Georgie in southern New Jersey where at certain spot between trees, you can catch a glimpse of the beautiful Philadelphia skyline in the distance.
