Gillian C. Fazio was raised in Lakeland, Florida and began her art education at Rochelle School of the Arts. After attending both Lois Cowles Harrison Center for the visual and Performing Arts and Lakeland High School, Gillian earned her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from the University of Florida.
Her work focuses on flora and fauna juxtaposed with human culture, looking at how they function together in one picture plane. These unique and colorful compositions are made through combining photographic references rendered into paintings. In keeping with Gillian’s love of large scale paintings and murals, Lakeland Tapestries is a wonderful opportunity and an honor to share her work with the community of Lakeland.
