Born 1980 in Stroud, Gloucestershire, Victoria grew up surrounded by beautiful countryside. This inspirational environment combined with the encouragement of an artistic family set her on an early path to drawing and painting and she cannot remember a time when she did not want to be an artist.
In 1998, Vicky undertook a course in Art and Design at Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Higher Education. From here she moved further South West to Cornwall, and graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2002 with a First Class Honours degree in Illustration.
On leaving university, Vicky accepted her first professional commission for Children’s television to illustrate a BAFTA award winning series ‘Ripley and Scuff”. From here she went on to work as a house illustrator for a prestigious company in London where she stayed for just over a year before returning to her West Country roots and settling in Bath. Since 2003 Vicky has been working as a freelance illustrator enjoying an exciting and varied range of commissions for clients both in the UK and in the United States.
Vicky’s latest collection introduces us to the glamorous and hectic world of the “it girl”, and uses humour and an in-depth knowledge of what women want to create irresistible, amusing images. Her unique combination of mixed media including photography leads to a delightful and distinctive blend of retro-chic and contemporary style.
