Developing the creative Spirit

When Virginia Bailey gives a lecture or shows her paintings in an art gallery, she is billed as "artist, archaeologist, world traveler." And that doesn't include her degree in nursing from Cornell University or her many successful years as an international toy designer and sales manager.

She has pursued her interest in artifacts and antiquities during onsite explorations at archaeological digs in Turkey and in Caesarea, and during extensive travels through Italy, Greece, and Crete. She was employed for seventeen years by a Persian dealer of antiquities and lived in Teheran for two and a half years in the early 1970s.

She has made a close study of the early cultures of several regions, and especially of aspects of communication in ancient times. At present, she is painting pictures inspired by cylinder seals that are inscribed in cuneiform, depicting the language of the dance.
