Art by G. SooHoo

Hi! My name is Gina “SooHoo” Watkins. I am an artist who has been living on the Central Coast for almost 20 years. I have been painting all of my life. I studied art at Cuesta College and California State University, Northridge. I am a widowed mother of two children. I create art as a type of therapy for myself, to explore my feelings from past traumas and heal in the present.

I was born with the last name SooHoo. It is one of only two Chinese surnames with two characters (syllables.) I am ½ Chinese and ½ Caucasian. I feel the name is as colorful as my art.

Original artwork and various size prints on canvas and fine art paper are available for purchase and I am available for commissioned pieces.
