Virginia is a sister of noted potters Tina and Greg Garcia. She is a daughter of Lydia Tafoya and a granddaughter of Severa Tafoya. She is also an aunt of Jason Garcia. Virginia is known for her traditional style of pottery focusing on classic Santa Clara shapes. She also created a distinctive "plum" color in her pottery in the late 1990's. This coloration was created through her firing technique. Today, she no longer makes pottery but her work is still classic in form and style!
