Ginger Roberts moved to Florida in 1973 after growing up on a farm in the Midwest and getting a degree in nursing. After twenty years as a critical care nurse, while dabbling in many creative endeavors, Ginger stumbled across a new and different art form, Mixed Media Figurative Sculpture.
Ginger’s inspiration can come from anywhere, but she is drawn to fantasy, myths, and legends. The figures might come from a fable she read, a phrase she heard, or someone she passes on the street, even a piece of music might feed her creativity. She strives to give the viewer an emotional experience they might not have had in the past, but hopefully will want to repeat again and again.
Her work has been shown in many venues around Florida and in numerous other state galleries and exhibits. She is a patron member of NIADA, a worldwide organization of outstanding original figurative mixed media artists.
Ginger’s realistic figures challenge the viewer to imagine a life where whimsical characters come to life and invites one to make them part of their world.
