"My Brushwork is the color of my soul"
Born into a very creative family in Victoria BC, Virginia's mother enjoyed doing pastel portraits and painting landscapes in oils. Her dad enjoyed photography and silk screening and gave Virginia her first camera at the young age of 6. Feeling a pull towards the Arts Virginia drew often as a child and excelled in Art class throughout her school years. She sketched often and dabbled in acrylic paints when her two sons were young. Being involved in the local Art Community has made her realize she had found what makes her heart and soul sing.
Virginia finds inspiration from any landscape, from westcoast to prairies and also enjoys still life subjects.
Lately she has been exploring with watercolors.
Virginia & her husband feel so blessed to live on beautiful Vancouver Island B.C. Canada. Her other interests are gardening, swimming, nature photography, fishing and flying with her husband. She also finds joy in sharing by teaching drawing and painting in acrylics to adult beginners and she too feels she is always learning.
