Emerging as one of Tennessee’s naturalistic painters, Virginia’s work has overall warmth.  There is a close-up reverence for nature in her paintings, as well as a delightful harmonious feeling, which is almost musical in its aspect.  Fragrant roses are her favorite subject.  Thousands of blossoms have been painted on glazed porcelain surfaces and in watercolor, oil, and acrylic.

Formerly a nursing school instructor, Virginia teaches floral workshops.  A nationally accredited flower show judge, she travels throughout the South judging conventional and abstract floral designs in collage, mobiles, assemblages, and kinetics.

Private and corporate purchases, as well as exhibition awards attest to her creativity.  Virginia’s memberships include Tennessee Watercolor Society, Civic Arts League, Inc., Association for Visual Arts, Chattanooga; Tennessee Porcelain Artist Associations and International Artists, Inc.  These represent forty nationals, two territories, and fifty states.

Inquiries are welcome for available paintings.  She will work closely with you regarding the art subject of your choice.
