Floridian, Virginia grew up in Orlando where she received her
Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rollins College. Her company,
"Drawn Creations", was inspired by a family name
and its interplay with her artwork. She has "drawn" her inspiration
from the beautiful coral reef fishes of the Caribbean.
As a child, she enjoyed family vacations at
Green Turtle Cay in the Abaco Islands where she would spend her days
fishing and snorkeling off the local reefs. She combines her
artistic talents with her love of the ocean to create realistic
watercolor depictions of saltwater fish and other sea
Inspired by the works of the great wildlife artist John
James Audubon, her depictions are studies of each fish. "I have
always loved the ocean. I am impressed by the natural beauty of the
fish and marine life of the coral reefs," Virginia notes. "The
striking colorations, distinctive shapes and patterns of these fish
are artwork in of themselves." Her work has also appeared in various
publications, including "Sport Fishing Magazine." She and her family
now reside in Jupiter, Florida.

The prints are created through giclée (szhee-GLAY) which is the
finest quality reproduction process. The French word giclée means
"to spray" and refers to the manner in which the ink is delivered to
the substrate, whether fine watercolor paper or canvas. This digital printing method takes an original image that
has been scanned into a computer, color-corrects it to get the best
match to the original, and prints it directly to the substrate.
These museum-quality photomechanical reproductions are the finest
available, making them superior investments for
All of Virginia's giclées are sold in limited
editions, and most are available in different sizes. The edition
size refers to the number of reproductions available of an original
image. If an image is produced in different sizes, each size is a
separate edition. When the edition is sold out, availability is
solely from private collections at enhanced prices. The collector
who invests when the edition is published will have equity in his
piece by the time the edition sells out.
