Virginia Paquette

(American, born 1947, died 2022)

The late Seattle-based artist Virginia Paquette created paintings and conceptual public art installations. She stated that the primary urge in her work is "to make marks, images, symbols that will communicate to you a message, feeling, visual stimuli that may be pleasing or thought-provoking."

Paquette received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1976 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1978, both in painting, from the University of Washington in Seattle.
