Virginia Fifield is best known for her stark series of super-realistic charcoal drawings of animals and nature subjects. Her larger than life sized drawings explore themes such as our reciprocal relationship with the natural world, perceptions and beliefs of our right of ownership, and the appreciation of the spiritual connections between man and nature. Her work aims to initiate a deeper contemplation and internal dialogue about the environment and the relationship in which we coexist.
Fifield has won numerous awards including Drawing Magazine’s International Drawing Competition in 2015 and the prestigious All Florida Exhibition and Competition at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, 2012. In 2016, she was featured on PBS’s TV series ART LOFT. Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout Florida. Fifield serves on the Board of Trustees for the Art & Culture Center of Hollywood and the Selection Committee for Public Art in Broward County. Her work is exhibited with the international Opera Gallery and is held in public and private collections internationally.
Originally from Canada, Fifield received her BA of Fine Arts at York University and studied Architecture at University of Toronto. There she exhibited in commercial and public galleries throughout Canada and was awarded Canada Council grants. In 1992, she moved to the United States and lives and maintains a studio in South Florida.
