Gina Pierleoni

Gina Pierleoni

Artist Overview

Gina Pierleoni uses portraiture to spark conversations about empathy and our common humanity. Pierleoni’s images are acts of deep seeing pushing past label and judgments; they "de-separate" us. The Baltimore Sun described Pierleoni’s figures: “gloriously human…there's nothing between them and you to keep them from meeting you head-on. It's hard to get too much of an artist who can convey a sense of self-acceptance and strength even in the knowledge of weakness and fallibility.” She’s represented in 150 private and public collections. Pierleoni’s classes/workshops build connection and strong communities. She’s been teaching adults and children for over 30 years.
