Virginia May Edinger

Virginia May Edinger has been immersed in the arts and fairy lore throughout her childhood in magical upstate New York. With a fairy illustrator mother and a botanist father, she has made fairy houses all her life. Now a writer/actor and 2018 graduate of SUNY Purchase, she has stayed connected with her magical roots by helping to run a fairy-house building workshop at the Dionondehowa Wildlife Sanctuary, and contributing a fairy house installation for The Georgi Fairy Festival in Shushan. She is glad to be able to put these arbitrary skills and knowledge to use again (in tandem with her filmmaking experience) in these videos.
