Nevada City, California
Redefining found objects and turning them into whimsical meditative assemblages has been Virginia’s lifelong focus as a professional artist of 30 years. She encourages her patrons to give her personal treasures to use on the work they commission her for. Virginia’s work has been shown in San Francisco Bay Area art galleries, museums, hospitals, healing centers and libraries.
“Sharing new ways of seeing and inspiring others through the treasure hunt quality of my work brings more attention to the way ‘cast-offs’ can be repurposed into beautiful and meaningful art. If I can bring more balance to our planet through encouraging thoughtfulness, then I’m doing my job as an artist!”Virginia Ray
