Gena is an artist, teacher, facilitator and counsellor. She completed a BA Honours Degree (Visual Art) at Deakin University in 2003; has exhibited her artwork at several art galleries in Melbourne, and is a member of NAVA (National Association for the Visual Arts). Gena draws on her interest and research of iconic cinema imagery, psychoanalysis, astrology and Greek mythology to create paintings that reaveal conscious and unconscious aspects of the female psyche, relating to personal identity and wholeness. She is particularly interested in Carl Jung's Collective Unconscious and the Archetypes which are symbolic themes of the human condition, significant in the process of psychological growth. Whether it is figurative, landscape or abstract, Gena's art reflects her personal experiences, making them authentic expressions of contemporary art.

Gena, who was a Registered Nurse for many years, embraced her creativity in later years and believes we all possess the innate gift of creativity. She has developed a business where she inspires and motivates people to express their creativity, explore hidden potential and make positive life changes. Gena lives and works in Melbourne.
