  • Growing up with creativity in her surroundings pertaining to Ojibway teachings at the Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba. Art has always been very important aspect in Victoria Elaine's life.

    With a unique eye for detail, shapes, and colour, she creates colour-inspired, eclectic, versatile paintings. She says the interest is overwhelming at times to keep up with the demand, but its rewarding when the art work comes through. She is always up for the challenge.

    Art is fun, it therapeutic, and a great way to communicate in a non-verbal sense. She says she speaks through her hands.

    The Art she creates is so versatile from realistic to abstract, and so are the mediums she uses. From graphite pencils to Pyrography etc. She is also involved in the Craft area of making jewellry, quilting, sewing and 3D art.
