Artists' Biography

Frank and Ginny Maiolo (rhymes with payola) were born in Southern California growing up in the heydays of the 1960’s. They experienced traditional values juxtaposed with the burgeoning peace and love generation. This influenced their lives by creating a need for adventure, exploration and art appreciation. With this background and a long fermentation time, fast forward to now: married 34 years, three adult children, two grandchildren and retired from the corporate world.

Frank and Ginny have traveled extensively throughout their 34 years of marriage in an attempt to appreciate and understand other cultures. While their early lives were shaped by the ocean and beach, their last twenty years have been spent in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. This husband and wife team have returned to what they valued as children; nature, freedom and individuality.

Ginny has been artistic throughout her life enjoying all aspects of design. Her primary focus since 2007 has been painting (watercolor and acrylic). Last year she began the quest to learn metalsmithing. Ginny’s love of nature presents itself in organic designs with the use of beautiful gemstones and mixed metals. Frank has had a love for photography since high school and became a student of metalsmithing and jewelry design after seeing the tactile delight it offered his wife. His interest in Native American and Latino art and culture is evident in his designs. Drawing upon their love of nature, world travel and creative imaginations they have collaborated to produce a unique style of jewelry. Combining the masculine and feminine, simple and complex they have created unique metalwork designs that are timeless in their beauty and form.

Their first public exposure, after a year of friends and family being the recipients of their creations) is the Monument Hill Farmer’s Market in Monument, Colorado running from May 2013 through the middle of October 2013. Several other venues are planned in the fall.

Frank and Ginny consciously decided that it is never too late to begin something new even if the fire began with a creative spark that has smoldered for over three decades.
