Gemma is originally from Barcelona, and is there where she studied art and where she started working on her paintings. Subsequently, she finished her studies in Florence and now is currently based in London.
All the places she has been and lived have definitely influenced her way of painting and palette of colours. Starting in Barcelona with Mediterranean blue and ochre tones, Tuscany and Venice, with tan colours and warm atmosphere, Morocco with strong reds and well contrasted lights, and London, with misty skies and subtle light.
Gemma mainly paints urban landscapes of these places, although frequently are not any specific place but a memory of colours, light, buildings… She normally works with oil and likes to experiment with different textures mixing oil paint with sand or different mediums.
