Artist of the moment…….Virginia Stroud

 

 

Virginia Stroud is an Native American artist renown for her paintings of the female figure.  Virginia Stroud was born in Madera, California in the year 1951. Stroud is of Cherokee and Creek descent was raised in Oklahoma with a Kiowa background.

Stroud attended Bacone Junior College located in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She went on to attend the University of Oklahoma located in Norman. She studied elementary education and art.

The artist has won numerous awards from Native American Art appreciation organizations.

Stroud works in oils and acrylics and is also an avid printmaker.

Price range information: No pricing available on originals. Prints can be found from $50 to $500.

I enjoy the minimalist aspect of Stroud’s artwork. Though she doesn’t paint facial features, we get a feeling of the emotional pitch of her figures from the depictions of their bodies. Her horses are also very simple and elegant.
