Artist Bio

At Critter Critter Creations Virginia offers hand made original artwork and art instruction to make you feel inspiration in your life. Creativity, playfulness, and humor are all embedded in the artwork inspiring you to recognize nature, animal life and your spirit which are all intertwined. 

By offering artwork one can recognize and be inspired by non-human life forms we live among, but often ignore, the life of animals and nature. Through this inspiration you can elevate the value of any life form.

At Critter Critter Creations Virginia seeks to combine worlds through surrealism or using animals as subjects to inspire one to see their own value along side nature.

Also at Critter Critter Creations Virginia provides private lessons in a wide variety of disciplines including but not limited to drawing, oil painting, acrylic painting and linoleum block printing. Teaching experience is based from Virginia's current professional positions at Frederick Community College, the Delaplaine Arts Center and Visarts in Rockville where Virginia has taught children, teens and adults.

Her work has been shown at such places as the Arlington Arts Center, ConnerSmith, Edison Place Gallery, Hood College, Goucher College, City Arts Gallery, Metro Gallery, Creative Alliance, E.M.P Collective, Current Gallery, 14kt Cabaret, Visarts at Rockville and most recently at Area 31 in Frederick. She has been included in the Transmodern Festival in Baltimore multiple years and has participated in two performance arts festivals in New York, including the Brooklyn International Performance Arts Festival and the Infringement Festival.
