Ginny has always loved “the arts” and has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. As much as she loves music, she says her true life’s work is painting, and she feels like the two disciplines are very closely intertwined. She states, “Much of what applied to my musical training also applies to art.” She works in oils, watercolors, and acrylics.
She has lived in Hailey, Idaho since 1981 and loves living in the high desert mountains with her family. In the early 1980’s Ginny began her art journey when studying pottery at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts - Pottery Center, and fine art classes at the College of Southern Idaho with Lee Withers, John Blackman, and Mike Youngman. She has also attended classes and workshops studying with great art teachers including: Norma Dennison, Richard Bird, Roy Mason, Carrie Stuart Parks, James Soares, Dwight Williams, Joyce Green, Kathleen Torgesen Murdock, Gloria Miller Allen, Maria Smith, and also with Claudette Bray of Springdale School of Art. Ginny remarked, “To each of these teachers, I am eternally grateful.”
Ginny receives many commissions and enjoys working with clients to create beautiful works of art. She is also an award-winning member of Idaho Watercolor Society and is currently the Idaho Watercolor Society Traveling Show Coordinator.
Her works are available at District Gallery, of Park City, Utah, and Wild Hands, of Jackson, Wyoming.
She is a member of Idaho Artist – idahoartists.com and Owner of Ginny Blakeslee Breen Artist, on line at GinnyBlakesleeBreen.com

You always hear that life and art are a journey, and it really is true. One of the main lessons in life and art, I believe, is to follow your intuition. My easel is my altar and my contract with heaven is to show up every day. One of my main prayers in life and art is \"show me.\" Then I paint. I have followed my path and these big, bold flowers have literally \"shown up.\"
We all have many things to deal with in life, some of which are difficult, and we know scientifically now that all images and things have a frequency. So when we choose to have an image in our surroundings that is uplifting and powerful, we are creating an environment in our homes or offices that will heal and nurture us. I want my art images to be uplifting, beautiful, and powerful; I want each piece to be an image that \"gives\" you something wonderful when you see it.
I love this planet and I love being here; I want the \"flower\" or fruit of my life to have a positive impact on our world.
Commissioned work welcomed.
Thank you for your interest and support.
