Victoria started to draw from early childhood. Already in kindergarten she copied at a distance from nature and drew icons. Some drawings have been saved till the present day surprising with their adult character, depth and color saturation.
Victoria studied at the faculty of Art Graphics. But all this was something already studied, something that created a certain framework and caused a desire to go beyond them. Therefore, the artist abandoned creativity and followed the path of business and career. But what was sown in us as a seed is cultivated unnoticed and makes its way from the inside to the outside. And in 2010 a breakthrough occurs.
Victoria returns to creativity, but in a completely different and new light. Victoria calls her style “Hand map” or “Hand map art”. Contemplating canvases you become a traveler, following the map of your soul, focusing on the images that appear in your consciousness, discovering in yourself all new facets, "continents, countries, islands" of your soul, previously unknown. The hidden meaning of a map is an indication of a multi-faceted survey of the result and the fruits of the paintings themselves. In process the artist uses plastic cards and fingertips. The brushes are rarely involved in the process, only for writing specific works to order, according to the individual request of the client, as well as, for example, in the depiction of classical still lifes, which are quite rare, individually and to order. This technique has formed a specific style. The style was born from the outer space of being in a condition of deep trance. Victoria has designated it as "Trance Dust“. The paintings are created and transformed into multidimensional canvases that literally breathe like a living organism. Paintings in paintings, changing silhouettes seem to be moving. An endless amount of images, a dance of color and depth. Everyone can see something of their own, depending on the development of consciousness. The more you contemplate the creations of Victoria, the more they immerse you in their unknown world. These paintings develop people's consciousness, transform and extend horizons, break old attitudes, restrictions, blocks, open up new facets in you, create a renewed personality passed through catharsis, had got rid of illusions and reached becoming.
Victoria is a member of the Professional Union of Artists of Russia.
