Virginia began painting on the walls of her bedroom, much to her mother’s dismay. Art classes were always the favorite in high school, and she majored in Fine Arts at Ohio State before getting derailed by having to make a living. She worked as a graphic artist, teacher, hiking guide and most recently she retired from a 14-year career as the Executive Director of an Animal Shelter.
A great lover of animals and the outdoors, she spends her time with her dogs and cats, as well as her kayak.
Virginia lives in Conway, NH has been doing watercolor pet portraits since 1997.
