Virginia Cantarella is an artist, Illustrator, and Landscape painter, located in Greenville, New York. At the start of her career, she spent six months in Italy studying art history, and has flourished in the field ever since. She is a member of the Association of Medical Illustrators and the Graphic Artist Guild. In the 1980’s, Virginia was an Adjunct Associate professor at Long Island University, teaching the course: Introduction to Medical Illustration. In the early 90’s, she completed two texts, Troutman’s third volume on “Corneal Astigmatism” and the revised Byron Smith text; “Ophthalmic and Reconstructive Surgery”, that required 100-1500 illustrations each, which took 1-4 years to complete. In 1997, Virginia retired from Medical Illustrating and she now devotes all her time to fine arts. “For me” she says, “the subject matter or message is secondary to what the painting looks like. It is the visual experience that interests me the most.”
