Growing up in the Finger Lakes, and traveling the world has shown Victoria the peace and beauty of nature. she has always enjoyed the process of creating, using landscape and surrealism as her main passions for expression.
Victoria was first introduced to fiber arts and needle felting in June 2014 while volunteering in Rochester. She saw an inspiring felting demonstration, and from there she began creating her own needle felt paintings and pushing herself to new limits with this medium.
Her inspirations are the landscapes that she sees in her local community and travels all around the world. Nature and my own life experiences have all inspired and influenced my works of art.
“Nature is my center and capturing the beauty of nature is my mediation.” She tries to do as much of her landscape outside in the very environment that she capturing(plein air). Victoria plans to keep pushing her boundaries of needle felting by doing more large scale felts that highlight 3-D relief aspects with striking details.
