Victoria is a Visual Artist who studied glass design at Staffordshire University in the mid 1990's. Her studio is on the Bedfordshire/Buckinghamshire border and her art practice focuses on Mixed Media Painting and Printmaking. She finds these two disciplines complement and inform each other and allow for a wider exploration of subject matter.
Currently her inspiration is taken from maps, aerial views, town & city scapes and architecture. Victoria has always been intrigued by 'detail' and is drawn to depicting her chosen focus of attention in a way the viewer may not have considered before. By using a sketchbook and a camera she endeavours to isolate shape, space, composition, quality of line or enticing textures. This process of observation will often translate into a multilayered or textural artwork.
Victoria has been exploring permanent versus temporary within these environments. Aerial views can show the adjustments to our land over time. You might see the remains of iron age settlements, newly built road networks, the ever moving boundaries that divide up the land. There are also the temporary changes to our streets that happen everyday with the individual repetitive journeys made by us getting to work and commuting.
