At the age of 14 she started learning the fundamentals of the traditional way of making pottery from her friend, Marie G. Romero (Marie was instrumental in bringing traditional pottery making back to Jemez in the 1970s).

Today, Virginia specializes in handmade storyteller figures and nativity scenes.
