Virginia Pierce

My work is an expression of my ever changing life experiences. It is all about light and atmosphere. I have a broad range of artistic expression, from bronze casting, oil painting, terra-cotta, to my current body of work which is comprised of landscapes and florals in watercolor and pastel or both.
I have been classically trained in painting and drawing from a young age from my father who was a professional artist. My background includes studies at the University of Texas, Laguna Gloria art schools in Austin, Instituto D’ Allende in San Miguel, Alliance Francaise in Paris, Dante Alighieri in Florence.I have studied with and been mentored by many professional contemporary artists. I have a love for both abstract and objective works. My most recent body of works are described and a combination of abstraction and realism. I like to express the feeling of the subject and have my viewer complete the feeling in their own way. I love the continual challenge of capturing the world around me through my energy and art. I enjoy teaching private lessons and giving workshops in my home studio or on location.
