Ready to Hang
One of a series of nature inspired images - Inspired by the old engraved plates from Europe with a to-date twist. Things are not always as they seem and never stay the same as in nature. Each piece is unique unto itself.
This unique piece was created on a treated pine wood panel with rounded beveled corners. Reminiscent of Victorian botanical prints. No framing necessary, just hang directly on the wall. A floral image is hand drawn onto the wood with pen and ink, then painted with markers and sanded. Several layers are applied one on top of the other to create depth and interest. A thin coat of lacquer is then applied to protect the art work.
The top of the image is a burst of color signifying life and youth then gradually fades into the undergrowth - aging, dying yet still alive in the darkness.

She attended Maidenhead College of Art and Design, which is now part of London University. During the early years, she spent great amounts of time doing the one thing she loved most – drawing.

After traveling for several years, she settled in Austin, Texas, where her career as an artist grew into its own. Victoria has had the opportunity to branch out into many areas of art and design. Her clients include Peter Bay – Conductor of the Austin Symphony, The Austin City Limits Music Festival, Little City Coffee Shop, and Jean Rather.
