Victoria J Sterkel

A true colorist, Victoria is devoted to the act of painting, to commune with the creative forces.  Her love of color & texture and maniipulating the paint has infinite possibilities for abstract work.  Her process of soulful, introspectiveness is the essence of the experience rather than the final product.
             
 Raised in a rural, small town in Colorado, she spent most of her formative years in Hawaii, earning a Bachelors of Fine Art from the University of Hawaii, Manoa.  Born with a love for drawing and using her hands to create, with her eighth grade teachers suggestion, she went to Parsons School of Design in Manhattan NY, for a summer program.  Introduced to figure drawing, color theory and design, her life purpose became clear.

Married recently to her high school sweetheart, Victoria paints in her backyard studio accompanied by her two dogs, Daisy & Ruby. Weekends are spent with her two step sons cooking up exciting meals & enjoying family time.

The artists' work has earned her admiration by collectors in Mexico, Sweden, Canada and the United States.  Her exhibitions include venues in Honolulu HI, Columbus OH, Delta & Hotchkiss, Montrose CO, Cancun & Merida, Playa del Carmen Mexico.
