Biography


 





Gini Morelock Bosco’s earliest interest in art came from a painting done by her grandfather George Wall, an engraver by trade. The idea that someone could create a scene from a flat surface that you can feel with all your senses, planted a seed. Drawing became a passion, telling a story through line and gesture.
 




Early influences were the works of Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth. Gini explains, “My work is not like theirs however they opened my eyes to the depth and beauty of the ordinary or commonplace.” This is the concept that fills her heart and drives her work. "I love a good story. Every person, place or thing has a story to tell." Gini is inspired by the works of John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Joaquin Sorolla as well as many of the English and Russian Impressionist.
 




Working primarily in oil, as well as charcoal, Gini creates works in a naturalistic style that take you into their own existence, like reading a good book; making a connection between past and present, capturing a single moment forever. Gini has received numerous awards and honors for her works in national and regional exhibitions, including Oil Painters of America Virtuosos of the OPA 2019; Oil Painters of America National Show 2009,2016,2017; Oil Painters of America Western Regional 2012,2015; Oil Painters of America Salon Show 2015,2016,2018; Bosque Conservatory Art Classic National Show 2007,2009-2013; Salon International 2012-2014; American Women Artists National Show 2014,2015,2017,2018,2019; American Impressionist Society National Show 2014; American Impressionist Society Small Works Showcase 2017; Portrait Society 2017  Texas Top Ten ; Portrait Society Tri-State Competition 2019;Pastel Society of the Southwest 2002-2006.
