About Gini Wade
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 a post-graduate student at the University of Aberystwyth from 2007-10 and was awarded an MA in Fine Art, with distinction. She specialised in lithography with Paul Croft RE. She is based in mid Wales where she makes prints. After working to illustration briefs for so many years, she enjoys the freedom to choose her own subject matter. 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, oil paintings and ceramics. She has taught printmaking in mainland China, Hong Kong and Guatemala, and was the lithography tutor at the Sidney Nolan Trust, Herefordshire, from 2011 - 2017. In 2014 she was accepted onto the plate lithography Summer Course at the prestigious Tamarind Institute, Albuquerque. In 2016 she won the regional Welsh prize at the National Open Art competition. Her prints are held in private collection all over the world, and also in public collections: the Wellcome Library Collection, the V & A, the Zuckerman Museum of Art, USA, the Ewing Gallery of Art, USA, Hunan Fine Art Institute, the University of Aberystwyth Collection, and the Contempory Art Society for Wales Collection. She is a director of Aberystwyth Printmakers and contributes articles to Printmaking Today and Impact magazine.
