Ginny Butcher


Ginny shares her artful life on a rural patch of ground in central Wyoming with her husband, Duane. In 2001 she began her professional career, although, like so many artists, her roots in art go back to childhood.

Growing up with an artist mom who taught her a lot about drawing, at a young age she aspired to be a “painter of paintings”, but it wasn’t until she was almost 40 that she went to college and earned a fine art degree. A few years later she began to pursue painting in a more serious manner. Soft pastels were her medium of choice at the time. Finding herself envious of oil painters for the diversity of the medium, a few years later she launched into oil painting. It’s been almost 15 years since that move. Her love of oil painting is as evident as ever.

Ginny has continued her education through workshops, mentoring and online instruction from time to time. She’s participated in local, regional and national shows and enjoys teaching workshops locally. Ginny offers individual classes in the field or at her home studio.

Ginny’s work is currently shown at Deselms Fine Art in Cheyenne, the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, Wyoming, and Art321 in Casper, Wyoming and at her studio in Glenrock, Wyoming.
