Ginny Hoyle’s work has appeared in Margie, Copper Nickel, Wazee Journal, Pilgrimage, Tygerburning and other publications. Ginny Hoyle and Judy Anderson, friends for more than 25 years, have collaborated on numerous artist books and installations that honor the place of books and ideas in our world. Ginny also collaborated with artist Ellen Sollod on a piece of anti-war mail art designed by Sollod that was presented to more than 50 world leaders and opinion shapers in the run-up to the war in Iraq.
Ginny spent most of her career creating concept and copy for marketing materials for a wide range of clients, partnering with Asher Design, Anderson Studio and other graphic design firms on projects that earned numerous regional and national awards. Her work was featured in AIGA Graphic Design USA: Volume 6 for a project with designer Mark Hanger and Volume 8 for Tokyo Press Check: Making Face, with Judy Anderson (The Book Show). Earlier in her career, Ginny was staff writer and for the International Reading Association; she spent several years at Denver’s Channel 9, and three years in Louisiana that yielded two good things—newspaper experience and the birth of her daughter (who is also a writer).
At Penn State (BS, Journalism and Consumer Services) Ginny edited the college monthly, did an internship with Scholastic Magazines in NYC, and spent a term in Strasbourg, France, as part of PSU’s Study Abroad program.
Ginny volunteers at Plains Conservation Center and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, where she works in the Earth Sciences Collections. She leads a haiku workshop offered through Denver’s Academy for Lifelong Learning.
