As Carter Ratcliff has observed, Gornik "persuades us to reimagine the familiar elements of landscape" through a language of personal expression. She approaches her subject as an exploration of light and color, producing hauntingly beautiful, evocative views of nature. Her drawings and prints, in particular, possess an unmistakable personal and intimate quality.

Born in Cleveland, Gornik studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art, before transferring to the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Canada. She currently resides and works in New York.
