Victoria Waln Member Since April 2008 Artist Statement Photographer / Artist
My interest in art began in primary school. I studied in pencil drawing and pastels mostly. Later, I continued with studies of acrylic and oil painting, airbrushing and art history in college.
With the start of a family, my interests transformed into faster mediums, digital drawing and painting, photography and digital photo manipulation.
My current works are mainly 'tangibles', as I call them. Interpretations of natural places and objects, rarely, posed 'still lifes'. It's been a good change for me, as my early works were mostly abstract, emotional expressions of my mental state during much emotional upheaval in my life.
Now that things have settled down, I find my work to be much brighter and interesting to the general public.
