Get a glimpse of the world as seen through the eyes of “Aini”, otherwise known as Virginia Dornheim.
Virginia Hilton is a native German artist that enjoys weaving her self-taught skills and passions into illustrations and a variety of handcrafted accessories. She is most known for her vibrant floral corsages that enhance any outfit with a magical flourish!
Tired of living like a Fairy Tale character in the Bavarian forest of Germany she decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in gaming, art, and localization. Her background has inspired her to create fanciful multimedia art pieces. Her artistic visions culminate in a variety of mediums: digital and traditional paintings, as well as sewing, ribbon embroidery, beading, and other treasure making. Her favorite things include cats, frilly dresses, and flowers. Which, incidentally, are also her favorite things to draw and work with.
In her latest adventure, Aini decided to return to Germany and continue a new chapter by pursuing creative ventures alongside Artificial Intelligence.
Other aliases include Aini and Ainiwaffles.
