Gini Wade studied printmaking and graphic design at the Central School of Arts & Crafts (now Central St Martins) and worked as an illustrator and childrens’ book author for many years. She was an MA student at the School of Art, Aberystwyth from 2007 -10 where she specialised in lithography.
She is based in mid Wales where she makes prints. Her work draws on myths and dreams, with a dash of the dark side. She is a DJ, and dance and celebrations inform many of her images. She also makes animations.
Since graduating, she has run lithography workshops at the Sidney Nolan Trust and for Aberystwyth Printmakers. She has also taught printmaking in Hong Kong, mainland China and Guatemala.
Her prints are held in public and private collections all over the world, and in 2016 she won the Best Welsh Artist of the Year award in the National Open Art Competition. She is a director of Aberystwyth Printmakers and contributes articles to Printmaking Today.
