The Artist
Virginia was born in Tanzania, East Africa, and trained for a theatrical profession at the Arts Educational Trust School, Tring. Whilst pursuing that chosen career, Virginia also developed her God-given gift and love of portrait painting and began exhibiting successfully in Australia and England, including at the Century Galleries, Henley-on-Thames. She depicts adults, children and animals in lifelike images. Besides commissioned work, Virginia also demonstrates portraiture, holds workshops and teaches private art lessons to young children and adults. Her other art forms extend to murals, trompe l’oeil and spiritual images.
Virginia won her first prestigious art prize at age nine for her entry in the Esso Calendar Competition and began receiving paid commissions as a young teenager, including a piece for ‘Abba’s’ Anni-Frid Synni Lyngstad. Her published works span several books and greeting card illustrations and her fine art images are available as giclee prints and on gift ware.
