Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Geinene’s foundation in visual art originated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Sculpture earned from William Carey University in Mississippi.
Her artwork has varied over the course of her career with a current focus on neuron-centric subject matter and creative advocacy connecting with communities in the realms of rare disease, neuroscience, and mental health.
This unexpected creative journey originated with the desire to better grasp her daughter’s rare genetic disorder (22q13) and developed into an intrigue with neuroscience and the beautiful complexity of the human brain. Her inspiration comes from the hope found in its ability to re-circuit around inflicted damage and how no matter our cognitive abilities, our thoughts, positive or negative can influence that process.
Geinene works from her home studio in Tyrone, GA where she lives with her husband and 2 children.
