WHO ARE THE REAL BALLERINA GIRLS?
At Ballerina Girl Art we are always looking for Inspiration! Please send us photos of YOUR Ballerina Girl.. We will feature your photos and story HERE and she may become the inspiration for my next painting!
Sophie and Angelina were the inspiration for this series as the first ballerina girls I painted....
I am a self taught painter, making a living doing what I love for the past ten years. I am happy to announce that I am now represented by NIETO FINE ART Gallery in San Francisco and I had the honor of exhibiting my work in the San Francisco International Art Fair.
I received this email yesterday from a family who surprised their mom, who used to be a professional dancer, with the original painting, "Between Ballerina's" for Mother's Day. If you are visiting the Bay area, feel free to arrange a studio visit.

ABOUT MY WORK
Review by Mathew Felix Sun "Georgianne Fastaia's Works Stand Out ".
Her works - mostly figures and landscape or cityscape - have rich textures and great atmosphere. Her figures often boldly claim large portion of the canvases, giving them a sense of being timeless and monumental, yet they are abruptly confronted by the edges of the canvases, making them somewhat vulnerable, therefore the complexity of the figures and the paintings palpable. I also detect sense of desolation from her landscape, not dissimilar to those by Edward Hopper, despite the obvious difference of their techniques and subject matters. This sense is particularly obvious in her works painted after Hurricane Katrina.
