Victoria is a multi-skilled artist, who focuses a number of genres within fine art photography such as, abstract, underwater, deadpan & landscape. In recent times, she is also exploring a new medium of trace-sketching working from her own photographs and using blends of Indian ink pens combined with watercolours.
Currently, Victoria is based in Christchurch, New Zealand, after living in some of the big cities of Europe such as London, Glasgow and Berlin. Having lived through one of New Zealand’s worst natural disasters in 2011, where the city of Christchurch was rocked by a violent 6.3 magnitude earthquake, with many powerful aftershocks that followed for a long time after, her city was never the same again.
Life was a challenge for anyone living in the city during and long after the earthquakes, for some much harder for others. Victoria turned her situation around, through photo-documentation of the city and was able to complete the final year of her bachelor’s degree in 2012 through Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design. (Her work can still be seen under ‘deadpan’ on the menubar).
In 2014, Victoria was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a neurological disease with no known cure, but she has done well to regain as much normal function to her everyday life. With her great love for art & her supportive partner, anything is possible through the eyes of Victoria’s.
