Victoria Park is an abstract multimedia artist living and painting out of her home studio in Langley British Columbia. With a life-long love for the visual arts, Victoria had grown from a toddler's obsession with crayons to starting her own graphic design business for 7 years in her young adult life, to now balancing her new role as a mother and going back to creating art with her hands again. Her abstract work reflects her curious and lighthearted way of thinking inspired by the Pacific Northwest landscapes surrounding her and letting her imagination fill in the blanks.
Growing up as the second youngest of eight children I marvelled at how my older siblings could harness a pencil, paintbrush, or clay to create something beautiful that didn't exist before. Their courage to take creative risks fuelled my passion to never stop creating, as they told me over and over again, anyone can make art all you have to do to get better is to keep doing it. We didn't have a lot of money growing up but most of the gifts I did receive from my parents were tools to keep championing my passion for art... An etch-a-sketcher, crayon packs, big rolls of paper, an easel, spray paint, an airbrush. Up until grade nine, I was homeschooled which maybe was to my advantage to grow in the arts but math and sciences were heavily ignored for my love of sketchbook. I managed to catch up on the other subjects in high school while painting my heart out in as many art classes the school would allow me. A year after high school I started up my own business in illustrations which then grew into a full time job doing graphic design. After seven amazing years of working with many incredible local brands and people, I closed up shop to start my new adventure of motherhood and creating art with my hands again.
