About

A Creative Seed Planted

I worked most of my career as a magazine art director and graphic designer, but secretly always wanted to make my living as a maker of fine art and fine crafts. My Etsy shops are a result of that desire. I worked most of my career as a magazine art director and graphic designer, but secretly always wanted to make my living as a maker of fine art and fine crafts. My Etsy shops are a result of that desire. The inspiration for the beautiful silk scarves I sell on my other Etsy shop (see below) was based on the fact that many people love my artwork but have nowhere in their home to put it. I decided to create a line of scarves under my victoriab:design label to solve that problem. Now you have the opportunity to wear a piece of my art!

Here is a little about my background as a creative: As a book and mixed media artist, I have taken classes at Center for Book Arts in NY, the Lower East Side Print Shop, Women’s Studio Workshop, R&F Handmade Paints, Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, Dieu Donné Papermill, Robert Blackburn Printmaking Studio, Pratt Institute, Columbus College of Art and Design, and Ohio University: Lancaster. I have explored a wide variety of artistic mediums such as bookbinding, papermaking, printmaking, letterpress, ceramics, collage, encaustic, painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, textile arts and surface design.

I am a cultural omnivore, regularly attending a wide variety of live musical, theatrical and dance performances. I belong to both a community chorus and a folk music group. I was a founding member of a dance collective, and I am a member of a food coop and a CSA. I am an avid hiker, journal writer and blogger. I have given back to the earth by volunteering as a trail worker in national parks across America. I have volunteered as an onboard educator and crew member on the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. I learned medieval stone masonry in Provence. And of course, I devour books. Lots and lots of them.

My work has been shown at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist’s Coalition (BWAC) shows in Red Hook, and with the Park Slope Windsor Terrace Artists as part of the Artslope arts festival. I have also shown at Uzi NY Gallery, Pratt Manhattan Gallery, Dieu Donné’s Y2K Group Show, and at the Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition. My work is in private collections and in The Sketchbook Project’s archives.

Although I work in a variety of mediums, I have a special love for the book arts because they provide me with an endlessly flexible form which allows me to incorporate multiple art techniques and personal interests, including graphic design, and writing. I also design and sell artisanal hand-dyed, hand-painted silk scarves under the label, victoriab:design. Visit my Etsy shop at VictoriaBDesignShop to purchase!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Contact me through the Etsy conversation center to discuss possible custom or personalized orders. If I can at all accommodate your request, I will! It will depend on what the project is. Please keep in mind that since the objects I create are one-of-a-kind works of art, I could never exactly recreate one, although I could make one with a similar "look."

Gift wrapping and packaging

Items are not gift-wrapped. If that is something you would like, contact me through the Etsy conversation center to discuss whether or not is would be possible.

Care instructions

Works on of art -- especially works on paper -- could be damaged in direct sunlight or in humid, damp conditions. Always treat an original artwork with special care, so that you can enjoy it for a long time!

Wholesale availability

Because of the one-of-a-kind nature of my artwork, wholesale is likely not a possibility, however, you can always contact me through the Etsy conversation center to discuss. Questions about licensing can also be addressed in this manner.
