Born and raised in Manhattan, Ginsburg has lived in Chicago for many years. A self-taught artist with a B.A. in Art History from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Ginsburg works with stoneware, terracotta, paper, and other materials to create three-dimensional sculptures. Also, Ginsburg pursues painting and recently began using photography to create portraits of her sculptures that re-contextualize how the viewer perceives her work. She served as curator for Getting into Face, an exhibition of photography by Bernard Colbert at Gallery 203. Ginsberg helps run Gallery 203, a cooperative located in the Flat Irons Building in Chicago. She has shown her work at Gallery 203, Woman Made Gallery, ARC Gallery, and Around the Coyote.
