Victoria was born and raised in Vancouver BC. As a quiet child, she found a comfort and stimulating way to relate with those around her through art. She was consequently given opportunities to attend workshops and receive private instruction from local teachers and career artists.

Her early foray into the art world landed her scholarships and exhibitions including paintings displayed by the Medical Research Council of Canada, and at the Vancouver Art Gallery. In 1993 she shifted her focus toward a 22 year career as a Registered Massage Therapist, and yoga instructor. In 2017 she left RMT work, for time to re-ignite her work as an artist, her life long passion. Inspired by her continuing studies of body structure and kinetics, she ventures from these literal points of reference in abstract painting.

Exploring broader emotional and visceral impacts through a variety of representations has been an important part of what she communicates, leaving room for variable interpretations. She also seeks to understand and express her natural surroundings, through a variety of landscapes and biological elements.

A Conversation with Victoria Mitchell

OMG: What was your inspiration behind the pieces in this exhibit?

Victoria: The exploration of environmental sensitivities through painting is profound for me, and creatively demonstrating interconnections with our surroundings. I hope for viewers to find their own way of introspectively feeling into each piece, as subtleties through the layers and details are discovered.

OMG: Can you describe your creative process or technique and how you approached making these pieces?

Victoria: I often begin my artwork without a particular intention for the outcome, and allow the flow of form and colour to emerge naturally. Clarity of the direction with each piece emerges as I layer paint on canvas or wood panel. Elements of humanity, fauna and flora, work their way into many pieces as I work into greater depths and details.

OMG: What are your plans for future artistic projects or exhibitions?

Victoria: I have multiple directions with creative endeavors annually! This year I’ll continue to work on an illustrative project of extinct animals, commission works, and collaborative projects. I’ll also be curating two exhibitions, and am presently preparing for a two month show with another artist, which parallels the dates of exhibiting at the OMG Art Hub! It’s such a pleasure to connect with the arts community, and share creative explorations in so many ways.

OMG: Where else can we find your artwork?

Victoria: I welcome visitors to my open studio in Vancouver, the first Saturday of most months from 12-5pm. Details of location, and other upcoming exhibitions, are listed on my website. I am also active on Instagram where I enjoy sharing current thoughts and artwork.
