About Me

GINA RENAY
http://gina_renay.blogs.com/off_the_hook_awesome_croc/images/2008/09/28/crochet_awe10.jpg
is  the mastermind and freestyling designer of her fashion-tabulous line called AWE!Some CROCHET.  She is an innovative instructor extolling both individuals and groups in the art & joy of freeform design.  She specializes in YOUnique wearable art clothing and accessories.  All of her designs are one-of-a-kind spontaneous artistry.  She believes one should either be a work of art or wear a work of art:  to thy own style be true.

She is a poetess, visionary, conceptual fiber artist, costume designer for the indie movie 'Dream Kweens',   sign praise interpretative dancer, coordinator, storyteller and mom-preneur.  Her fashions have been featured on tv, in newspapers, galleries, hair & fashion shows.

"I can create whatever  you can imaGINA", is her heart's cry utilizing a YOUnique collaboration of your vision with hers to create poetic threads.

Having arrived in Atlanta August 2005 from Escatawpa, MS a day before Hurricane Katrina hit, she has unleashed a fury of her own.  She has adorned herself with strength, courage and determination to persevere to make a name for herself.  Having lost 90% of everything to the storm, she impassionedly and dauntlessly announces:  'Katrina will not defeat me--you can't keep this good stitch down!'

   'My art in thread is a bold, vibrant expression of avant-garde individuality. I develop a frenzied urgency of spiritual energy fusing the beautiful with the unusual.  Each fiberous strand forges a new life of art for tomorrow's possibilities, today's vision and yesterday's  strengths.  I ardently test and push the boundaries of style by blending art with fashion, creativity with passion and edgy sophistication without apology.'

With a flaire for the unorthodox, GINA RENAY's styles are haute, haute, haute!

I am interested in collaborating with artistic visionaries who think outside of the box. I am extremely hardworking, energetic, FUNky, witty, ambitious, friendly, and reliable. Let's make magic together...

Please do leave a message as I could have fallen and slipped on yarn and can't get up.  Well, I can still crochet lying down.   Girl, I am surgical with this instrument, teehee.  I have that mad woman crochet disease--"crochet-itis", dis (at) ease without my hook and thread, which causes me to "foam at the hook".
