Virginia Barrett is an artist drawn to capturing form and color in nature, landscapes, and sculptural work from diverse cultures. Her series of mixed media painted poems celebrate a unique, spiritual relationship between the word and image. In addition to her visual work, Barrett is a published poet, author, and editor; her most recent books are: I Just Wear My Wings—collected poems of an aspiring mystic; OCCUPY SF—poems from the movement (co-editor); Mbira Maker Blues—a healing journey to Zimbabwe (travel memoir); and Radiance—poems from Mendocino.  Barrett is the founder and director of Sweet Sanctum, a salon-style art, literary, and performance space in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco.
