  • About

    "Fantastic, allegorical, imaginative, phantasmagorical, are words which come to mind in trying to describe Virginia’s work. The more one looks, the more detail there seems to be. Animals, insects, mythical creatures, some in one colour, some black and white with just a touch of contrast. A magpie cocking its head to one side, an owl that looks like a judge, spiders, a wonderful fox in dress clothes and full colour as befits the subject. A horse, a tiny fairy wren. There appears to be no limit to this artist’s vivid imagination. Children could spend hours trying to spot the individual creatures in these whimsical drawings" - Kate Perkins, (Jordon's Crossing Gazette)
