Ginny Baughman was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. In 1981 she received a BFA from the University of Dayton and in 2004 received an MA in art education from the Ohio State University. She has also attended a variety of professional workshops, seminars, and conferences including the Kennedy Center’s National Seminar for Teaching Artists in Washington, D.C.

Ginny has been a teaching artist for more than 25 years. She has taught art in a variety of different venues in central Ohio and Dayton. She began her art career almost 30 years ago selling prints of her drawings and paintings in her then hometown of Westerville. Ginny received five Community Artist Grants from the Greater Columbus Arts Council. Ginny is now getting more involved in the arts community of her new, old, home town of Dayton. She received the 2021 Montgomery County Artist opportunity Grant to complete a Coloring Book of Dayton area landmarks. In 2023 she completed a coloring book for Wapakoneta Ohio.

Ginny also does contemporary artwork that is content based. Content based means that she uses a variety of media for her art including, but is not limited to, 3D paintings, paper sculptures, found object sculptures, installations, and chalk art. Many of Ginny’s artworks have been accepted into local and national exhibitions. They have also been featured in variety newspaper articles about these exhibitions.

Today, Ginny creates both traditional and contemporary artwork. Being a split personality artist gives Ginny, and her students, versatility to explore lots of different types of art. She loves creating traditional artworks of familiar places, but she also enjoys creating contemporary artwork that gets people thinking about important issues. She also love tradition art from her family heritage like Ukrainian Egg Decorating.

Ginny is always getting involved in new artistic ventures. About five years ago she began doing sidewalk chalk art and has completed almost 30 chalk art designs since then. In 2023 Ginny took on a job as a scenic artist for Town Hall Theater in Centerville, Ohio. She has now completed eight shows with Town Hall and looking forward to doing more.
