Ginny Baughman has devoted her life to creating, teaching and learning about art. Her inspiration comes from her life as a woman, wife, mother, student and teacher. Born and raised in Dayton, she earned a BFA from the University of Dayton and an MA in Art Education from The Ohio State University.
Baughman has been a teaching artist for over 20 years and a freelance artist for 25. Her shift focused to contemporary art in the last decade. Her contemporary artwork is content-based and she uses a variety of media. This includes 3D paintings, paper sculptures, found object sculptures, installations and chalk art.
“I keep both my traditional and my contemporary artwork going. I still enjoy creating drawings and paintings of my surroundings, but my contemporary art gives me a creative outlet. I also enjoy performance style art: installations and chalk art. I love interacting with the public while I work. I like to create artwork that gets people thinking about important issues, but I also enjoy creating traditional artworks of a familiar places. Being a split personality artist gives me versatility as an artist,” Baughman said.
