My name is Virginia Tolkin, however, my parents and family members have always called me by the name of Ginny. Phonetically it sounds like Geeney. Why? Part of the reason is because my mother’s name is Virginia and my parents were Spanish speaking. They never quite pronounced Ginny correctly. My background is in psychology and counseling but my true nature has always been that of an artist. I decided to stop fighting against it and roll with it. I have sketched my whole life and won first place and best over all in an art contest for my school when I was in the 8th grade. Since then, I took up painting as a hobby in 2005. I never had the voraciousness as I do now. My sketches, paintings and clothing motivate me to live each day with joy and peace. I hope that you find my work inspiring and peaceful.
