Gina Triplett grew up in rural Minnesota, surrounded by fields, woods and corn. An early penchant for telling stories to her many younger siblings led her to the narrative and expressive format of illustration.
Her time as an illustrator has led her though many facets of illustration. She has worked with editorial clients that have included The New York Times and Rolling Stone. She has illustrated books for nearly every major publisher, including Random House, Little Brown and Penguin. She has worked on a number of advertising campaigns including posters for Apple and gift cards for Target. Her latest work has carried her into branding and products. These projects have included a signature shoe by Converse, journals by Chronicle Books, and a new visual identity for Whole Foods Market.
Her work has been featured on the pages of American Illustration, The Communication Arts Illustration Annual, Print's Regional Design Annual, and The Society of Illustrators Annual. Print selected her for their New Visual Artist review, Communication Arts featured her in their Fresh column, and Step put her art on the cover for their Women in Illustration issue. She has been included in several illustration anthologies including The Picture Book, Curvy, and Illustration Now, which featured her art on the cover of the hardback edition.
Her commissioned work draws heavily upon her personal explorations. She paints collaboratively with her husband, Matt Curtius, and together they have exhibited in a number of galleries in the US and abroad.
She lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
