An interior designer by training and vocation, Ginny Herzog has taken her eye for detail and interest in architectural elements and abstracted it into one-of-a kind mixed media paintings using oils, watercolor, crayons, graphite, cold wax and any other medium that will give her the effect she is after.
Balancing the traveling life with family meant that for several summers running one of her children would be her partner for the season. When one of her kids smashed her van into the garage wall before a big art fair she and friend artist Jody dePew McLeane squeezed all their work, displays and tents into Jody's minivan and enjoyed this style of travel so much they continued it for several years
As she travels she takes photos of the architecture of cities along her art fair route, later mining the images for her collages. She does several site specific paintings a year for clients. These paintings may be of one project (commercial or residential) or may include a body of work by one architect, architectural firm, or developer. I have done city specific series that reflects the architecture in several different cities, including Chicago, Denver, Des Moines, Miami and New York.
Labor Day weekend you can meet Ginny in Royal Oak, MI, where she will be exhibiting for the first time at Arts, Beats & Eats
