Mary Virginia Swanson is the wisest investment I made in my  career. Under Mary Virginia’s guidance, the recognition of my work and the success of my art career has grown greatly and exceeded what I could have accomplished on my own.  Mary Virginia has helped me with the creation of my website, preparing for portfolio reviews, marketing my work and she always has a smile on her face.
