Chula Gemignani is a narrative painter using paint as a medium for inner peace while sharing some stories along the way. Through images that are sometimes real and sometimes dream-like fantasy, Chula takes in inspiration from what she experiences as the layers of consciousness which come alive while we sleep at night and the parts of us that rest just beneath the surface of each linear thought during our waking hours.  When she is not expressing through these multi-dimensional layers, she simply likes to sit in beautiful places and take the time to paint them. 

Chula has a Bachelors of Arts from San Francisco State University with an emphasis in Painting and Metal Arts.  She has spearheaded many art projects including a gallery and community center in Marin County, a children’s summer arts program, and Viva La Milpa, an international art and education project in Mexico.   She is a gardener, musician/singer-song-writer, massage therapist and a somatic counselor.

Chula continues to take great joy in art activism.  She loves to use art to inspire others to make a positive difference in the world.  Locally, she has participated as an artist in The Wild and Scenic Film Festival.  Her oil pastel, True Gold is of the Heart, representing the native species of plants and animals that are endangered if the San Juan Ridge Mine was to re-open, travels with the San Juan Tax Payers Association to local events opposing the mine.  Chula made Rio No Se Vende/River Not For Sale to support the successful stopping of the Daguerre Point Dam Hydro Project in 2013 and she has shared the image with various organizations who are also continuing to fight dams. She painted Conjuring Peace in Palmyra over the course of a year, opposing war.  Of course postering city walls in Mexico with Viva La Milpa art to protect the native corn of Mexico was, thus far, the highlight of her art-activism career and she is always up for a new adventure.
