Gina Femrite was born in West Germany. She started her art training at an early age under the tutelage of her father Johan Strater, a contemporary European Impressionist.
She also attended the Saarbruecken College of Art and Skills to further her career into the range of illustration and designer art.
Armed with the knowledge of both fine art and design, Gina began working full time in her father’s studio. Loving both the style of the French impressionism and that of the Flemish maters compelled her to use a mixture of both in the development of her own unique style.
Her talent was recognized by art galleries and art agencies throughout Europe . She was offered an exclusive contract with Harry’s Galleries and the Paul Schwarz agency until she moved with her husband David Femrite to his homeland, the United States of America .
Once in her new country, Gina quickly succeeded in becoming known as an accomplished fine art and commercial artist with an impressive following of private and corporate collectors. Her work has also been published by various publishing companies like Western Graphics, Impact Images, Posters by Impact and Life’s Foot Print’s.
