About

A journey to happiness

Artist Bio

Victoria FitzGerald is an oil abstract artist exploring textural bases to start the painting process. Living in Wyndham Vale, Victoria works full time in Administration but finds time out of hours to paint. Victoria attended Gordon Tafe in Geelong to start at Diploma and Degree in Fine Art; the high costs associated with the degree was the catalyst to change ‘careers’. She has been painting since 2013 after a 5-year break.

Victoria has been experimenting to find her style since 2013; starting with watercolours, moving to acrylic on paper and then into what she is currently using - oil on canvas.

Though she has not appeared in any solo exhibitions she has show work in multiple art shows such as Linden Postcard Show, Brunswick Street Gallery 10th Small Works show and Werribee Rotary Art show.

Artist Statement

I have always felt drawn to the relationship between light and dark; the idea that the eyes can be calmed or excited by the placement of the tones and highlights excites me and is what I am trying to study and portray. Dark colours are fascinating to me as they feel like they have more complexity to be interpreted.

I try and create a sense of movement and depth through the textures and sweeping brushstrokes. A textured base is a starting point, dark colours are painted first and then areas of highlights are incorporated to create a blended and pleasing end painting.

Please join me on instagram where I show all my works in progress and inspirations.

    I am textural abstract artist and I am exploring the relationship between texture and tones. I love creating dark and dramatic paintings with highlights.

  • Anouk

    Assistant

    Anouk is my 8 year old cavalier. She has Syringomyelia but she doesn't let it get in the way of her fun. She is my inspiration for my first shop name (my middle name Joan+Anouk) She is a great listener and brings me joy everyday.
