Ginny Ruffner
(Atlanta, Georgia, 1952 - )

The artist received her undergraduate and graduate degrees in painting at the University of Georgia and then worked for engraving and glassblowing companies. In the 1980s she moved to Seattle, where she translated her painting background into lampworking and painting on glass, and taught at Pilchuck. A serious traffic accident in 1991 left Ruffner in a coma for five weeks, after which she had to relearn everything, from her favorite color to who she was as an person. Today she works with a team of glass artists to create painted lampwork sculptures. Creativity: The Flowering Tornado, Art by Ginny Ruffner (June 14–August 10, 2003) originated as one of the MMFA’s touring exhibitions.
