Biography

Ginnie started drawing and painting pet portraits during the 1970’s when she was showing dogs. First working in oils, she switched to acrylics, when the commissions backed up and oils dried too slowly. Not until 20 years later did she join the artist community and was introduced to watercolors. Being competitive, she started entering shows, joining and serving on the boards of various organizations.

Ginnie has exhibited in numerous group shows, one-person shows and dozens of outdoor art festivals from CT to NC. She founded and ran a national art festival in Wilmington, DE for three years. She currently serves as the Membership Chair for the Watercolor Society of North Carolina where she is a signature member.

Since moving to North Carolina she has been active in several artist’s organizations, helped found an art gallery, and continues to take part in festivals. She enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge with others through various classes, first at Sawtooth School for the Visual Arts and for the past 12 years at Forsyth Tech Community College. She also teaches independent workshops in painting and drawing.
