Artist Spotlight Series: Virginie Schroeder

I am excited to introduce you to a talented contemporary figurative artist who’s work is all her own.  It is rare to see work that is unlike anything you have ever witnessed.  

I discovered this artist in Quebec at Galerie Beauchamp and she was kind enough to be featured in my Artist Spotlight Series.

Enjoy getting to know
