As a gardener, Victoria endeavors to impart the essence of nature in her work. Victoria strives for that same essence of individual nature when painting any subject. Born into a military family she was fortunate enough to move to Europe as a young child spending her formative years there. That had a profound affect; by the sense of history and culture that surrounded the everyday. Her mother loved to travel and therefore the family traveled often from wherever the home base was at the time. World class art museums were readily available for soaking up the wonder of color, composition and subject matter. Victoria attended the Colorado Institute of Art, graduating in Advertising Design. That background in graphic design is still in evidence in her paintings today with her strong sense of composition, shapes and color. On and off over the years while working and raising a family she attended the Art Students League of Denver studying under some of Denver's finest artists. Drawing, printmaking and then oil paints. Victoria enjoys being outdoors and painting. Being a part of the Plein Aire Artists of Colorado (PAAC) affords her the opportunity to paint with like minded artists. There is nothing better than being outdoors doing what you love best with others that share the same passion. Having been in many local and national juried exhibitions over the years, she has earned from Honorable Mentions to Artists Choice and Best of Show awards.
