A student of vivid colour and spatial contrast, Victoria worked with Doug Morton during her graduating year of Fine Arts at York University. After extensive travel, she turned her attention to painting large scale murals in homes and public spaces.  Victoria was absorbed by this work for 25 years, during which time she painted an enormous 4,600 sq. ft. ceiling to resemble a sky typically associated with the Renaissance period.

Each of Victoria’s paintings begins with a line from a poem or prayer, providing her a kind of mantra she uses to distil the healing energy that defines her process.  [Victoria is a Reiki Master}

Victoria’s dramatic skies have become her signature, inviting the viewer to consider the heavens while pondering the wonders of a flower’s bloom. Flowers painted from the perspective of an ant provide striking contrast to the clouds and sky that frame these still life images.  The juxtaposition creates a surreal feeling to the viewer.

Victoria’s most recent series includes extensions of the original image in which she further explores the energy of the study. The additional panels include the progression of the initial recognizable form to its final abstraction.

 
Born in southern Ontario, Victoria has continued to study at the Halliburton School of Fine Arts, Neilson Park and the Burlington Art Centre. She currently paints from her studio in Hamilton, cottage in Halliburton and lives in her home in Oakville, with her husband and three children.
