About Ginny

My painting “career” began soon after I retired from my work as a public school speech therapist and immediately before my diagnosis of Parkinson’s in 2014.  While I had taken the occasional informal art class through the years, I began to experience an increasing sense that there was “a little artist in me that wanted out.”  I began taking weekly painting classes from a local artist with a small group of women. Along the way I developed some essential accommodations for my hand tremors.  I am encouraged by the knowledge that learning the new skill of painting is beneficial to my brain health.

I am also encouraged because my paintings have benefited my community. I have donated them to community fundraisers for animal shelters, our local hospital foundation, our community food bank, women’s scholarship funds, and our local educational foundation.
