About the Artist
Virginia is originally from New Jersey and currently resides
in Kennesaw, GA. She graduated Summa cum laude from Kennesaw
State University with a B.A. in Studio Art. She took further
instruction in oils but was taken with the immediacy, lushness
and vibrancy of pastels. She creates her body of work solely
in the medium of pastel.
Virginia’s landscapes have been
juried into national and international fine art competitions,
exhibitions and shows. Many of her works have been selected
for corporate, banking and municipal collections. Eight galleries
currently represent her.
It is through the medium of pastel that I express my creative
energy. Pastel is the superior medium because it will never change.
A pastel painting will be as vivid and vibrant today as three
hundred years from today.
I define my style as expressive colorism. It is my vision and
expression by which I create landscapes following in the tradition
of the American landscape painters. Nature is the key to all
color. Nature connects and grounds us, offering us a respite
from man-made encroachments.
It is my sincerest hope that my images will recall a special
time, place or feeling for you.
