Victoria is a Scottish native, born in Dumfries, but has travelled throughout the UK, Italy and America. These locations continue to inspire her work and the experiences and imagery collected from travelling are regularly expressed in her work.
Victoria trained in Fashion and Textile design at the Scottish College of Textiles which accounts for her exceptional use of repeating patterns, graceful forms and appealing textures in all her paintings.
She specialises in minimalistic compositions that emphasize her expert use of intense colour to create compelling atmospheres. Her new works have evolved with the addition of charming figures and town landscapes against the almost otherworldly backgrounds. This effect of a populated and captivating scene, achieved with only a few skilled brushstrokes, shows what a capable artist Stewart is.
