Paint Your Heart Away

When Love Leads To Art. After going to college to be a nurse, Gigi thought her career had been carved out for her. Then her husband surprised her with a thoughtful gift.

When Gigi Wilborn went to college, her mom told her “I’ll send you for one thing and one thing only, and that’s to be a nurse.” A degree, marriage, and kids later, and Gigi’s career had been carved out…or so she thought.

Gigi’s husband knew she was a creative and surprised her a few years ago with starter art set that included an easel, canvases, and paint. He sent her to a hotel for two nights and told her “I want you to paint your heart away.” She’s been painting ever since.

Here’s some of GW Harper’s (Gigi’s artist name) work. Hear her tell the whole story of finding her way back to creating, and how she found Serenbe, on the Serenbe Stories podcast. Find her work at Chatt Hills Gallery in Serenbe.
