Ginger of Ginger Leigh Designs
My name is Ginger but I was born Virginia Leigh and I've always been called Ginger. I am proud to say I was born in New Orleans and while I've lived in several amazing places, New Orleans will always be my home and have my heart. It is what founded the core of my soul and spirit & gave me a true appreciation for all things old and with a history - no matter the kind.
I graduated from University of Colorado with a pre-med degree; however, I have always been surrounded by artistic people and I developed a true appreciation and talent for combining colors, textures and styles. I have explored numerous artistic mediums, tools, theories, subjects and business endeavors. Then, in true Southern style....I coined my business, "Ginger Leigh Designs", 12 years ago. Since then I have piloted a stationery company, a retail storefront and a licensing company always selling my artistic designs. I conversed with the good Lord that I was willing to work hard and be a catalyst, to use me and give me a mission to touch people with His message and my art in all of their times of need....for comfort, for joy, for faith and for love. And, here I am......with a blossoming wholesale business.
Ginger Leigh Designs is now comprised of me, my Dad, my irreplaceable team of managers, my puppy dogs and several workers, who’ve become friends, who help prep and produce my divinely inspired artistic products all in Florida on Hwy 30A. We have a grand time: we laugh, we joke, we cry and occasionally we even solve the World's problems - not really, but we like to think so. I couldn't do it without these folks and for them and the experience that has been bestowed upon me, I am eternally grateful......
Grow every day, love every day, and let others see who you are, every day.
