Victoria’s recent paintings delight in nature and celebrate her romantic sensibility. Inspired by the plants of the coastal beaches, and wild hedgerows of Suffolk, where she has lived with her family for the past 10 years. She aims to shine a spotlight on to the delicate balance between man and nature; drawing us into the areas of the world that remain wild and whose future is precarious and uncertain.
Victoria’s work is painterly, and saturated with a love of colour and gesture. Inspirations include the Japanese printmaking masters Hokusai and Jakuchu, the renaissance artists Giotto and Bellini, Gauguin and Matisse, the German artists Richter and Baselitz, as well as contemporary painters Nina Murdoch and Cecily Brown, friends from her time at The Slade.
Trained at the The Byam Shaw School of Art 1988-89 and the Slade School of Fine Art BA degree 1989-93.
