"Through my art I help people celebrate a memory by creating custom commission of their favorite landscape, bringing joy and tranquility into their home or office."
Born into a very creative family in Victoria BC, Virginia's mother enjoyed doing pastel portraits and landscapes in oils and her Dad enjoyed photography and silk screening. Virginia drew often as a child and excelled in Art throughout highschool.
Virginia started painting fulltime in 2007. She painted a landscape for her brother and left it at her Mother's home till her brother could travel to pick it up. Her Mother called her to express the joy she felt of childhood memories the painting brought to her and that she didn't want to part with it.
This inspired Virginia to offer a way to capture a moment in time for loved ones as a keepsake.
"I would be honored to create a painting of your favorite location with you that brings peace and joy to you for many years to come and you can be proud to pass the painting on to the next generation. That's right, you can experience the process with me as i paint your favorite landscape! I also take photos along the process which I then make into a book for you to treasure of your art experience. Then we reveal the painting at your families birthday or wedding anniversary celebration. This makes a very unique Birthday or Wedding Anniversary surprise and gift!
