Biography


Ginny Schaw is an artist who divides her time between Medford, OR and her cabin along the Rogue River near Gold Beach. Both locations provide a wealth of beauty, serenity and adventure to inspire her art.

Recently, Ginny has been creating collages made entirely of pieces from magazine photos.  
 
Although mostly self-taught, Ginny has taken classes from some wonderful artists including Liz Lesparance, Howard Rees, Kate Bollins and Dan Edmonson. She has given both private and group lessons, and loves sharing her passion with others who may not have had the opportunity for positive art experiences.
 
Ginny's oil and watercolor paintings have been marketed directly by her as well as through Etsy, Ebay, Daily Paintworks.com, and Sutter Creek Gallery in Sutter Creek, California. Several are enjoyed by collectors across the United States. Some of her sold paintings were commissioned pieces.

Ginny was honored to receive first-place awards for [...]
