Announcement   Welcome to Geordanna the artist's shop!

My art shop is eclectic and unique.

I attempt to evoke subconscious emotions through painting with bold, vivid colors with an emphasis on negative space. Though I am a multidisciplinary artist, this shop will mainly sell my paintings on canvas, wood and paper.

♥ I have stage IV endometriosis which means every month I am out of commission for about 1 week. If your order happens to fall within a flare up, which they all usually do, please be understanding and patient with receiving your order.♥

I purchased a painting as a gift for my niece's 1st birthday. I'm glad that I was able to find an option for such a unique keepsake.

This is one of two paintings I bought from Geordanna. It hangs on a grey wall and looks fantastic. She was wonderful to deal with. Answered all my questions and made buying art on line easy. E-mailed me when paintings were shipped and received them within a few days.

About

Geordanna the Artist

I am a first-generation Costa Rican-American Artist, born in Houston, TX, living in Dallas, TX. My parents, my family, my heritage have highly influenced who I have become as a person and as an artist. Without their love and support I would be nothing.
I share my weird and eccentric life with my wonderful husband, J, whom I adore with all my heart and our fur-baby, a Lhasa-Poo named Remy. They are my life.

I have been painting and drawing since I could pick up a crayon at the age of 3. Because I was able to draw and paint much more realistically than my peers my parents encouraged and supported my talents by placing me in private art classes. I eventually made it to AP ART my senior year of high school. I attended to Baylor University with an art scholarship.

At Baylor University, I initially was double majoring in Studio Art and Biology, two very demanding majors. My freshman year was about the time my endometriosis pain started to exasperate. Whereas I used to have to take 1-2 days a month to recuperate, I was now up to almost an entire week of excruciating pain. On top of the physical pain, academically I was finding university art classes a bit limiting and constraining creatively. I ended up completely turning away from art all together concentrating on my science degree.

After graduating in 2005, I entered the corporate world and for 6 years I was relatively successful but in the back of my mind I knew something was not quite right. My work was not satisfying me creatively plus I was continually, month after month, feeling the intense progressively worsening pain of my Endometriosis. This pain would render me useless, unable to do anything more than sit in a fetal position with a heating bad, popping Advil like candy. My career was thriving but my heart and my health were suffering.

My husband was the one who pushed me to look further into my health issues after witnessing firsthand how incapacitated I would become every month. A few months into our marriage I was finally diagnosed with Stage IV Endometriosis. This only after seeing at least 10 different medical specialists over a span of 8 years and all of them telling me it wasn't endometriosis. My diagnosis led to many major, extensive surgeries (one of those surgeries being an 8-hour laparotomy which included excision of deep endometriotic lesions and extensive adhesions from every surface of my pelvic cavity, plus two bowel resections). After that major surgery I was forced to retire early from the corporate world, both my husband and I agreeing I should concentrate on my health.

While painfully and agonizingly convalescing for a year, I was able to do some profound soul searching, ultimately leading me to pick up a paintbrush again after almost 8 years. Initially my art was for therapeutic and healing purposes, later evolving on its’ own into an unexpected career. Since 2011, I have been pursuing art as a full time career and I am loving it. I owe so much gratitude and appreciation to my husband who is allowing me to do what I do.

Presently, my husband and I are on a difficult but hopeful journey in trying to conceive after heart achingly enduring many miscarriages. Since my endometriosis was diagnosed in 2010, meaning it went undiagnosed for over 13 years, the destruction from this benign cancer-like disease wreaked havoc on my reproductive organs. The delay in diagnosis is directly contributing to my recurrent miscarriages.

My purpose in life is simple: to create.... but beyond merely creating visual art, I know my ultimate creation will be when I create life

Along with my fine art career, I am a freelance graphic designer, illustrator, photographer and I am a part-time, private drawing and painting instructor.


ARTIST STATEMENT

My work may appear random at first, but upon closer inspection there is a common thread of exemplifying the beautifully chaotic. All my work encompasses equal parts of planning and spontaneity; a mix of direct and indirect intention, chance and circumstances. I believe this allows me to constantly be exploring new and different avenues for my work. I believe an artist should not limit themselves by technique or medium. This allows the opportunity for my art, the basic essence of my art, to shine through rather than merely my own need to control. I attempt to manifest through conscious and subconscious color choice and stroke, that which is not seen with the naked eye: emotions, imaginations, faith, love, the soul...

My ultimate goal is to create an interesting work of art that engages people to debate their own interpretations through creating a meaningful dialogue, whether they become a fan or a critic.

My purpose in life is simple: to create.... but beyond merely creating visual art, I know my ultimate creation will be when I create life.

GIFT CERTIFICATES
Perfect gift idea for the art lover who has exception taste.

Gift certificates are on a postcard that will have the full amount of the certificate's value written on the back, along with instructions for redeeming the gift, as well as an individual certificate code. This postcard will be sent in a blank gift envelope. It can be mailed to you for gift giving, or be sent directly to the recipient. Just message me if you want it sent directly to someone other than the purchaser.

The balance of the gift certificate can be used for both the price of the item and the shipping. To redeem, put the items you wish to purchase in your Etsy cart, and when you check out, check "other" as your method of payment, and enter your individual certificate code in the notes to seller. When the order is received, the balance will be deducted from the total cost (item cost and shipping). If you have money left, I will send you a convo informing you of the balance; if you've spent more than your balance, you will be invoiced for the rest. Please note that the item(s) will not ship until the full amount of the purchase has been paid for.

This gift certificate can only be redeemed in the Geordanna the Artist etsy store. Not redeemable for cash. Please contact me if you have any questions.
