Artistic endeavors have always been a part of Virginia’s life. Virginia was born in Vancouver and currently lives and works in New Westminster. She completed a Fine Arts Certificate at Emily Carr University in 2012. Exhibits include Emily Carr, Vancouver Maritime Museum, Britannia Mining Museum, New West Culture Crawl, and pop-up shows at Granville Island, Anvil Centre, Burnaby Art Gallery, and Shadbolt Centre for the Arts.
Inspired by the floral paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe, Virginia’s current series, “In the Garden” focuses on close-up images of flowers and foliage from gardens, both local and world wide. Virginia creates stylized paintings in acrylics using multiple layers and glazing techniques.
