Victoria Lake is a professional artist who paints from a desire to connect with the human need for identity and purpose. Growing up an American child in Europe, she was surrounded by European art and its influences. Her artful upbringing motivated her to create as a young artist. Victoria has lead and organized teams to administer forms of art therapy to disadvantaged children in South America and non-profits in California. Working with the poor and disenfranchised spurred her motivation to create her own work to bring hope and healing. Victoria is constantly challenging herself and others to unearth personal destiny.
Victoria feels she is self-taught and inspired by her past experiences, spiritual encounters and travels. Victoria’s paintings have reflective light attributes and the use of color often portrays movement. She is influenced by Impressionist artists such as Van Gogh and Monet and relates to American Luminism artists. She desires to give the viewer opportunities to connect spiritually, find soul awakening, healing and purpose.
“I can’t rid myself of this purpose; the lens through which I view life. My hope is to give others a peek at what I see when I look at the world and maybe spark a blazing fire of purpose that urges a look beyond what human eyes can see.” -Victoria
