Virginia Beale began painting in 2005. To expand her knowledge of the techniques of oil painting, she enrolled in art class in Ojai. She soon realized that, in order to grow, she should take more comprehensive classes. In the spring of 2005, she enrolled in Bob Moskowitz's beginning painting class at Ventura College. She learned a lot and has continued to take classes. Her desire as an artist is to take the viewer to a beautiful place and remind the viewer of the beauty that surrounds us wherever we may live.
Her works are currently hanging in Saint John's Hospital, Buenaventura Art Gallery and Ventura College, as well as in many private collections.
