Artist’s Statement

 

 

 

“I feel blessed to have been born creative. No day goes by when I don't use this precious gift. I am truly passionate about my craft, whether it be painting, illustration, lettering or chalk art. I look for the creative potential in everything around me; from gritty ageing architecture to a perfectly formed letter. There is beauty in everything if you look for it."

 

Victoria Heryet was born in Yorkshire, England and moved to Canada as a teenager. After receiving her Diploma in Graphic Design from the Kootenay School of Art and working for several years as a graphic artist for newspapers and magazines her interests turned to fine art and illustration. Her children’s book illustrations have been published in Japan and her paintings have been accepted and won awards in juried shows in Canada and internationally. Victoria continues to work on her paintings, commissions, commercial illustration, lettering and chalkboards from her home studio in Ladner.
