Victoria Nelson  facebook.com/VKNDesigns

From childhood days of building model airplanes and experimenting with a chemistry set, to her corporate career which frequently involved starting new projects and organizations, creating has been a critical part of Victoria’s life. Victoria’s first artistic efforts were self-taught in her teen years, followed by formal instruction in undergraduate studies at Georgetown College, KY.  Artistic efforts went dormant as Victoria pursued a rewarding corporate career in a wide-range of industries focused on technology and management. On a lark, in 2010, she began evening art classes. The corporate life was starting to not be fun, and one evening while painting she realized it was time to reboot, refresh and spend more time creating. Inspiration comes from flowers - part of being the daughter of a florist - and the island of St. Croix.  For over 35 years, Victoria and her husband Steve (a devoted, hard-working supporter of the arts community) have split their time between Florida and St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.

I seek to find beauty in the strangeness of interconnected nostalgias of family memories, loss and grief, escapism, and video games. I process and excavate my personal history to romanticize memories, relationships, passage of time, grief, and loss through constructed visual worlds in Drawing, Bookbinding, Ceramics, Etching, and Painting.
