Victoria's recent work follows the journey of the spirit
and finds repose in the seeker's garden

degree in fine arts. After extensive travel, she turned her attention to
painting large scale murals in homes and public buildings. Victoria was

enormous 4,600 sq. ft. ceiling to resemble a sky typically associated with
the Renaissance period.

Victoria is the current Vice-President of the Burlington
Fine Arts Centre and President of the Burlington Arts Council. Her
award-winning work is exhibited in Canada and the United States in juried,
group and solo shows.
