InkBison was formed in January 2012 by Guernsey artist Gina Andrews (currently based in York), who has been drawing and painting for as long as she can remember.

Gina graduated with a BA Fine Art honours degree in 2000 from Cumbria College of Art and Design; where she first discovered the joys of painting and exploring in Indian ink and where she could be found spending many hours, days, months sprawled on large rolls of Fabriano paper creating mosaic cartoons in ink.

Animals are very dear to Gina and they feature greatly in Gina’s illustrations and artworks.  Gina’s paintings explore emotions and characters through anthropomorphism and her animal portraits, in turn, explore mark making in ink.

Gina is also available to commission for pet portraits: “To be given the opportunity to paint your pet is an absolute honour and a pleasure and I do this with the hope of bringing happiness and joy."

"Thank you, to everyone that has commissioned me, I cherish the opportunity to paint your furry friends”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Gina has supported many events with a stall and her work always looks fantastic, in fact only recently I saw many of her wonderful pictures at Mint near the airport."

"We are extremely grateful to Gina from Ink Bison for being so kind in donating from each portrait that has come through the Animal Shelter and all you have to quote is 'GSPCA' in your correspondence with Gina."
