Ginny Pitre-Hay is a contemporary representational artist. At the heart
of her paintings is a story, whether obviously stated or left to interpretation.
From a lifetime of drawing, to her career as designer and art director
in the magazine and book publishing industry, she has dealt with the
power of storytelling.
“As an artist I get my inspirations from the ever-changing patterns of life passing in front of me—a snapshot in time, a narrative unfolding, seen
through the lens of my own experiences.”
Pitre-Hay’s artistic passion is in the rhythmic shapes, shadow and colors that form the subjects of her art. A simple rake of light across an old farm house,
an abandoned gas station, or the fluid gestures of people going about their lives, are all subjects that find their way in to her paintings.
Pitre-Hay grew up in Texas and graduated from the University of Texas
in Austin, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She lives in Oak Park, Illinois.
