Victoria’s recent work follows the journey of the spirit and finds repose in the seeker’s garden.
A student of vivid colour and spatial contrast, Victoria worked with Doug Morton of York University while doing her undergraduate degree in fine arts. After extensive travel, she turned her attention to painting large scale murals in homes and public buildings. 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.
Victoria’s dramatic skies have become her signature, inviting the viewer to consider the heavens while pondering the wonders of a garden’s bounty. Flowers painted from the detailed perspective of the eye of an ant, provide striking contrast to the clouds and sky that frame these unique still life images.
Born in Southern Ontario, Victoria has continued to study at the Haliburton School of Fine Arts and the Burlington Art Centre. She currently paints from her home in Oakville, where she lives with her husband and three children. Victoria is the current Vice-President of the Burlington Fine Arts Centre and President of the Burlington Arts Council. Her award-winning work is exhibited in Canada and the United States in juried, group and solo shows.
