Giovanna, or more commonly known as Gio, is the studio planner, coordinator, and unicorn. You may spot her capturing Art Nerd moments for the studio Instagram @wingedcanvas. With a background in fashion and jewelry design, she started her own brand in 2010 as a way to express herself and help others express their stories. She then studied Fine Arts and Psychology in the Arts & Business program at the University of Waterloo, where she designed multiple fashion collections and served as the Artistic Director of a tri-city charity fashion show.
Fascinated by how we express ourselves within the relationships we build, Gio uses her passion for the arts as a tool to explore our understanding of human connection. While she dabbles in dance and music, her artistic mediums of choice include interactive installations, sculptural media pieces, photography, and fashion design. Passionate about art literacy and community innovation, she uses her love of art to help connect like-minded people and build strong communities.
