About Victoria Albuquerque

London born artist, Victoria Albuquerque paintings are about her need to balance and harmonies.

With an early career in architecture it would have been natural for Victoria to express herself with straight line precision but a dissertation written during her masters about the influence technology has on creativity, she concluded that the closest link to creativity is through the hands. After a career in architecture, Albuquerque choose to paint two dimensional pictures about human life. It is vital for Victoria's work to be a drawing in of information to make a balanced and harmonious influence on life, self and others.

Victoria Albuquerque lives and works in East Sussex.
