Check out what one of my recent students, Debbie Stephens, had to say about me!

"I have taken several classes from Virginia at the local art center, and I’m now taking private painting lessons from her. I cannot recommend Virginia highly enough. The first reason is because, after sporadic attempts at painting over the years, I am finally producing paintings that I am satisfied with. Virginia is knowledgeable and  very good technically, and I learn a lot from her about technique.  She also has a very effective manner in the the way that she makes suggestions and subtly guides the artist, without ever stepping in and touching the work.. Perhaps her strongest trait is the enthusiasm she has for her students' efforts, and the encouragement she gives us."

And look check out Debbie's oil painting that I guided her to paint!
