Victoria has been an exhibiting artist with Kaiela Arts since 2012. For inspiration she often works from a story and her artwork often relates to both past and current events and places of significance. She also enjoys illustrating birds, especially eagles and the textures of bush environments.
Having resided in Shepparton for a length of time, Victoria strongly identifies with local Aboriginal culture and landscapes and often uses the Yorta Yorta symbol of the long-necked turtle amongst other symbols in her artwork. Born in northern New South Wales her traditional country is Kamilaroi.
Victoria has had a life-long interest and desire to express herself through art and she enjoys working in a range of mediums but, especially painting, which allows her greater freedom. Having come to formal education late in life, Victoria is currently completing a Certificate 3 in Indigenous Culture at GOTAFE.
In 2017, Victoria participated in the Design Roots 2 Victoria Park Lake project in Shepparton with other Kaiela Arts artists. Her light-infused illustrations using water colours of local bush scenery were selected by Spacecraft Studios, Melbourne for an artist’s hand-made, screenprint run on linen fabric. Her materials have subsequently, featured in the 2018 Aboriginal Art Fair Fashion Show in Darwin.
