FREDERICKTOWN — Ever since her youth, Virginia Birchfield has had an interest in art. It started with sewing and drawing, and after working alongside her father, she developed skills in painting and metal work. Birchfield told the News it all has contributed to the work she does today — sculptural pieces made of wood.

Birchfield primarily uses wood for her pieces, but also works with steel and concrete to embellish her work at Virginia Birchfield Interiors to create sculptural furniture and wood art.

Birchfield grew up in rural Knox County, attended Fredericktown High School and The Columbus College of Art & Design. It wasn’t until she attended CCAD that “I honed in on what I really wanted to do.”
