Ginny Parsons is an intuitive painter working with acrylics, bacon grease and other household materials. Raised in Chico, she earned a BA in Visual Communications at CSU, Chico and studied painting at The San Francisco School of Art. Her recent work focuses on Alameda shorebirds, observed from walks and supported by John James Audubon's drawings. Painting on canvas and found boards washed up by the estuary, Parsons collaborates with gravity through her drips and pours. As an environmental artist, her process begins with nature, by walking along the Elsie Roemer bird sanctuary or kayaying in Arrowhead Marsh looking for the endangered clapper rail. In addition to being an artist, Parsons teaches art to children out of her home-studio near Lincoln Park. Her work has recently been exhibited at the Gray Loft Gallery, Autobody Fine Art and Zonal in Hayes Valley.
