Victoria is a Visual Artist who studied glass design at Staffordshire University, England in the mid 1990's. Her studio is on the Bedfordshire/ Buckinghamshire border in the U.K. and her art practice focuses on Abstract Mixed Media Painting and Printmaking. She finds these two disciplines complement and inform each other and allow for a wider exploration of subject matter.
You could say Victoria has a slight obsession with looking at the world in an obscure way. She focuses on new ways of seeing the world around her, by flattening out our 3D world.
“Whenever possible I’ll grab the window seat in an aeroplane so I can snap away at the birds-eye views passing me by.”
This privileged view point in the sky gives her intriguing aerial views that flatten out man-made features, in turn highlighting what nature has to offer.
By using a sketchbook and a camera she enjoys isolating shape, space, colour, pattern, enticing texture and exploring scale and composition. This process of observation will often translate into a multilayered artwork.
"We all play our part alongside nature in creating these ever intriguing layers, textures, lines and marks that imprint our lands."
