Victoria was born in Bombay, India, and raised in Shanghai. At the age of twelve she moved to Argentina with her sister and father. Daughter of an award winning photographer, it was her responsibility to help him in his studio and darkroom, retouching negatives and coloring photographs in sepia tones with aniline and transparent oil. Since art was her main interest, she entered the National Academy of Fine Arts in Argentina, where she studied drawing and painting. She then married, had four children and moved to San Francisco, in 1963, where she worked full time while raising her family. In 1978 she decided to resume her studies in Fine Arts at San Francisco City College. She also studied privately with Marjorie Lester Leighton, Allan McCorcle and Bob Gerbracht. From 1986 to 1990 Victoria was Exhibit Director for the Society of Western Artists, chaired four Annuals and a National Exhibit, thus obtaining her signature award.
"Victoria tries to capture the essence of Nature to convey inner peace toward the viewer."
