â€œIn Her Gardenâ€ – Drawings, Prints, Photography by Virginia Stella
As a child, I went to church on Sunday mornings and often roamed the galleries of the Cleveland Art Museum in the afternoon. Other Sundays I spent in the parks gathering pods and leaves to play with. My early interest in mysticism, art and plants all came together as an adult. I have been an artist of earth and sky for many years. I use drawing and printing mediums and photography. The sacredness and beauty of the natural world and the wonder of the life cycle inspires my work. I have studied art at Dominican University and the Pacific School of Religion. I am co-ordinator of art exhibits at Marin General Hospital.
