Currently, she is active in her local art community with shows, teaching, and markets.Over the past 15 years, Destri's work has found its way into numerous group shows, online exhibits, and private collections across the United States and Europe, as well as into the gallery of Inspired Minds Art Center in Buda Texas. She has received awards such as the University Outstanding Senior Artist Award, and 1st place at the local Art Brawl.For fun, Gena Destri loves everything outdoors, moving her body, partaking in intellectual and spiritual conversations, doting on her 2 kids, and experimenting with food.

Artist Statement

In my artwork, I love painting what I see with a hint of memory, feelings, and energetic lines or texture to communicate focus and emotion. Usually, I work from life or photographs to start with, then finish up from memory to ensure loose, fun and unpredictable surprises for lasting interest. I am deeply connected to faith and nature in my artwork and I try to honor them in my pieces. Most of my recent artwork is centered on land, our connection to it, and the energy we draw from it. I have also completed more abstract work intermittently with my landscape work. My abstract pieces are built upon places I have been and the extreme emotions I have associated with that place, drawing upon specific encounters with others in my life. Colors and abstract elements appear from research and study of how we see different colors and shapes for individual emotions which we cannot quite name in the moment. Completed in acrylic, watercolor, and oils, I occasionally add drawing materials to my pieces, and sometimes I collage found or sculpted items into my pieces as well. I love texture, but I also love seamless blending, creating a mix of great technical display and "creating for the sake of creating" in my collections. The human figure may find its way into my work from time to time, as a vessel to be a moving and organic part of this world. I currently sell original art and fine art prints on my website and am always interested in taking on commissions and mural projects to further art experiences in any space for any community.
