Victoria Mitchell is a Canadian west coast artist from Vancouver British Columbia with a life long passion for creating visuals from emotions, inspired by what comes from within. Her extensive studies of body structure & kinetics over the years, as both a Registered Massage Therapist and Yoga Teacher, have influenced her abstract representations of the figurative and natural world, and the way we connect to our environments. Victoria’s work is exhibited in various galleries throughout the year, as she carries out creative explorations in her Vancouver Studio.
'I'm intrigued by the exploration of communicating through painting. There are endless inspirations in environmental, physical and emotional dynamics, which find a new visual voice in ways which might otherwise be undefined. I enjoy sharing avenues for introspection with others, and illuminating common threads within us and with our surroundings.'
Private instruction as a youth, from local teachers and career artists. Arts Umbrella scholarship workshops were also prominent in early education, and I am otherwise self-taught.
