BIOGRAPHY

Gina DeGideo is an artist from Mesa, Arizona. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Arizona State University. Through photography, mixed media, and bookmaking, she explores the human experience. As an Arizona native, growing up in the desert and constantly studying the ever-changing terrain, she is fascinated with the transitions and transformations found in the landscape, both man-made and found naturally.

Aside from her personal artwork, she is dedicated to supporting local kids and adults in her community to access arts education. Currently, Gina is making and exhibiting new work and serves as Gallery Manager at Art Intersection in Gilbert, Arizona.
