Virginia Cramer was Born in Brooklyn, New York, and lives and works in Massachusetts. She taught high school and middle school art for 16 years.
Cramer works in mixed media, paint, and pastels. Her inspiration comes from many sources: her inner world, memories, personal history, and her love of the natural world. She experiments with different styles, techniques and materials exploring art as a language and means of expressing ideas that have personal meaning, or that she finds interesting or beautiful. Her work moves between realism and abstraction.
She has studied at the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston’s MFA Museum School, The de Cordova Museum, The Danforth Museum, Montserrat College of Art, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. She is a member of the Cambridge Artists Association, Concord Artists Association, and the Arts League of Lowell. She has exhibited work in Lowell, Brookline, Lincoln, Westford, Cambridge, Concord and Chelmsford.
