ABOUT THE ARTIST: Ginny, a South Philadelphia native, has been painting for over 20 years. Her love for painting and drawing began as a child, and continued while taking classes at Montgomery County Community College and Woodmere Art Museum.
Eventually Ginny found her niche in Traditional QuiltArt, where she incorporates traditional quilt patterns - dating back hundreds of years - into her artwork. Her collection also includes landscapes, pet portraits and Civil War general portraits, among others.
Ginny's work includes a quilt that models patchwork from Fanny Chamberlain, the wife of noted Civil War General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. This piece can be found in the permanent collection of the Pejepscot Museum in Brunswick, Maine. Also featured at the museum is a watercolor of Little Round Top, Gettysburg.
Her collection also includes quilt pieces that have been donated to various local non-profit organizations. Ginny's patchwork has been featured in area exhibits, including the Woodmere Museum, the Hill Tea Bar, Cheltenham Art Center and Oreland Art Center.
