Victoria took her sculpture degree at City and Guilds of London Art School in the late 1980s where the emphasis was on a classical training in life drawing and sculpture.  She has completed several commissioned bronze portraits, including a life size bronze statue of Rudyard Kipling for Burwash High Street, which was unveiled in February 2019.  Her commissioned work has been exhibited with the Society of Portrait Sculptors over several years.  She has also exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition, Towner Art Gallery for the Sussex Open and often at the ING Discerning Eye, Mall Galleries.  Victoria has regularly exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Show at the Mall Galleries and at the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, where she is also an Artists’ Network member.


With her more abstracted work, Victoria’s focus is on reading the mood or character of a person through posture.  Her androgynous figures are captured at the edge of movement with a gentle reminiscent humour present in their body language. 


“I’m always intrigued by shadows or ghost images of somebody. When you close your eyes, features of a face or posture often don’t emerge but the ‘essence/soul’ of somebody does.”
