Gina Godfrey is a prolific abstract and portrait artist, a printmaker and curator, curating her many shows in Gina Godfrey Gallery on Bloor Street East. This is the 4th year she has been asked to participate in the Brain Project sculpture making. For 5 years she produced artwork on military helmets for auction at True Patriot Love, a national charity that supports military families and contributes to the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research.
