After training as a textile designer at Falmouth School of Art, Victoria worked in the textile industry for the United Turkey Red Company. Later in the 1960s she designed and hand embroidered silk shirts and kaftans for ‘Mr Fish’ in London.
Searching for a way to use her design and textile skills at home she started silk painting in the 1970s. Brilliant dye colours suited her highly decorative style, which typically features animals, birds and mythical beasts. The subject matter reflects her love of mediaeval decoration, which she has studied extensively throughout Europe.
Victoria studied printmaking at Hereford College of Art in the 1980s and has since attended courses at West Dean College. She is a member of Rodd Printmakers at the Sidney Nolan Trust and a founder member of the Hay Makers, a co-operative of local designer makers in the world famous book town of Hay-on-Wye.
Her work is in many private collections throughout Europe, Australia, Canada and the U.S.A.
