Boulder Creek 1 (pastel) by Gina Blickenstaff

An award-winning professional artist for four decades, Gina Blickenstaff specializes in portraiture, with a particular fondness for the Mother and Child theme, still life and landscapes. 

She welcomes any excuse to pick a bouquet of flowers or go for a hike in search of a riveting landscape, and her artistic approach is based upon her reverence for all forms of life and the loving and creative relationships which they form, recognition of the light that pervades all, and a love of color.

Gina has participated in the Boulder Open Studios Tours nearly every year since its inception and will also participate regularly in the Fort Collins Open Studios Tour. She has recently exhibited her work at exhibitions in Tampa, FL and Denver, CO.
