Virginia Smallfry

I graduated with a specialized honors degree in fine art from the University of Guelph in 1976.

Over the years I have investigated many mediums, including, graphite, pen and ink, oils, acrylics, collage and several printing techniques. My work has ranged in style from photo realism to expressionistic; from figurative to abstract. I have exhibited my work in solo and group shows in North America, Holland, England, France, Mexico and Guatemala.

As a trained hypnotherapist, my themes and imagery frequently explore the world of the subconscious. When the energy of a piece is established and flowing, I am led by suggestions which come from the painting itself. If I can successfully get out of the way and let this energy lead, the painting dictates its own course.

It is my hope that you get as much out of viewing these works as I did creating them.
