Purchase this piece
Ginger’s work is based initially on a good composition laid out with fine drawing skills. Her work reveals some realistic details, some abstracted spaces, plenty of active brushstrokes and a wonderful feeling of distance. She refers to her work as “casual realism”.
Ginger is a natural teacher and pursues this by teaching 2 to 3 workshops every year. She also hosts a group of aspiring artists twice a month as they develop along their individual artistic journeys. Sharing her knowledge, watching others grow into accomplished artists and painting for other’s enjoyment give her extreme pleasure.
Though she admits to being a fair-weather plein air painter, during the warmer months you will find her heading out with portable paint box in search of a good composition. Back in the studio, she paints more complex and larger paintings using her plein air sketches, a large selection of personal photos and a rich emotional memory.
Ginger is represented by Arts at Denver Gallery in Denver and Mary Williams Fine Arts of Boulder. She has earned Master Signature Membership in Women Artists of the West, Signature Member status in Plein Air Artists Colorado, Pastel Society of Colorado and the PaintAmerica Society and Associate with Distinction in American Women Artists. She has won many awards and has been accepted into the following shows: Oil Painters of America National and Western Region Shows, Western Masters Heart of the West, American Impressionist Society, Plein Air Artists Colorado, American Women Artists, National Oil and Acrylic Society Online, Art for the Sangres, Women Artists of the West, Mt Oyster Club Show, Salon International, Representing the West, Colorado Governor’s Show, PaintAmerica, Douglas Land Conservancy Plein Air Event, Wild About Colorado Plein Air Festival and many more.
“Mine is a world of composition in shapes, values, and color. Many different subjects arouse my emotions and compel me to paint their story. I am drawn to places filled with life and memories and places that reveal our shared human condition and purpose. I am also a teacher happily paying it forward so that others aspiring artists may grow more rapidly. I also write and listen music all day”
