Her background as a graphic designer means she’s a consummate professional when it comes to understanding a client’s brief, and her drawing skills always lead to a fresh outcome. Following fashion bloggers like Rachel Marie, Eugenie Grey, Mindy Plaz and Danielle Victoria she’s deep into the scene and loves the styles of the 1970s and 1990s.
An image starts with Victoria’s mechanical pencil hitting the paper, where she draws strong, deliberate lines to form the main composition with very little shading. Then it goes in one of two directions. It might be scanned into her computer for further work and coloring in Photoshop. Alternatively, to give it more interest she’ll paint in some watercolors before applying some finishing touches digitally.
Victoria’s style is clear and simple, yet sophisticated with touches of playfulness about it. Her use of color is carefully controlled – most images are black and white with slight hints of color to bring emphasis.
Victoria’s clients include Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Women's Health Magazine, Urban Outfitters, Kaplan International and Georgio PassiGatti.
