Gina Langford is the star of our next Artist Catch-Up series. Gina’s lovely watercolors have been gracing Dogwood Hill’s paper products since 2016. Gina comes from a long line of artists in South Texas, where she grew up playing in her mother’s studio. After receiving her business degree from the University of Texas, she traveled the world working for the Savannah College of Art and Design. Gina’s watercolor interests sparked after deciding to stay home and begin a family, and she has since become known for her custom heraldry and love of all things blue and white. She now lives in Tyler, Texas, with her husband and their four children.
Enjoy our quick Q&A correspondence with Gina below to read what she has been checking off her summer bucket list as well as some of her wishlist items in the Dogwood Hill’s latest Spring/Summer Collection. We have also included some of our favorite products that feature Gina’s artwork at the bottom of the post.
