About The Artist

Gina Watkins-SooHoo is an artist who has been living on the Central Coast for almost 20 years. She has been painting all her life and has studied art at Cuesta College and California State University, Northridge. She is a widowed mother of two children who attend local schools. She enjoys creating art as a type of therapy for herself. She also enjoys bringing smiles to children and adults with creative face and body painting at festivals, private parties, and for photoshoots.

SooHoo is the last name with which she was born. It is one of only two Chinese surnames with two characters (syllables.) She feels it is as colorful as her art.

Original artwork and various size prints on canvas and fine art paper are available for purchase and she is available for commissioned pieces.
