Of her life journey as an Artist, Victoria states, “Art is my passion and my joy! I believe that we are here to live our purpose as defined by what we are passionate about, that which makes our heart sing. I also believe that we each have a responsibility to share our gifts with all. Whether I am sharing my knowledge of Art through instruction, or providing a visual experience for the viewer or collector, my ultimate goal is to encourage all to see and live the beauty and joy of this gift of life. As the poet John Keats so eloquently stated, “ ‘Beauty is Truth, Truth is Beauty.’ – that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” My work is a celebration of the spirit that unites us all.”
