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 fatherís 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
. She was offered an exclusive contract with Harryís Galleries and the
Paul Schwarz agency until she moved with her husband David Femrite to his
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 Lifeís Foot Printís.
Gina welcomes and thanks every viewer that visits her
