Drawing from the practice of psychic automatism, Virginia Shepley's abstract forms and representational motifs reconcile the dualities of life. An abstract painter using line drawing and biomorphic forms as a visual representation of fundamental spiritual ideas, her work explores the connections and borderlines between physical reality and the invisible. Referencing elements of the body and nature, her color palette resonates as mystical vibrational imagery.
In 2001, Virginia got her Masters of Fine Arts in Painting from John F. Kennedy University's Arts and Consciousness program in Berkeley, California.
Her work has been shown in solo shows in galleries in California and North Carolina. Her drawings and paintings feature in private collections in both Europe and the United States.
Virginia lives and works on a farm in North Carolina.
