About the Artist
Victoria Burbage is a fine artist born and raised in a little town called Yeovil in Somerset, England. She started drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil and had an interest in portraits and animals. You can see that this interest has carried on in her work today.
She obtained a BTEC National Diploma in Art & Design at Yeovil College in 2011. Then going on to achieve the top grade in the Foundation Diploma, with a focus on painting, in 2012.
Circumstance made the idea of going to University difficult. But she has continued to pursue her interest in art while working a variety of jobs to support herself, including work in a nursing home and in a call centre. During this time, she has been showcasing her work online and in local galleries. This includes a joint exhibition at the Octagon Theatre, Yeovil in 2015.
Victoria’s work focuses on self-expression and experiments with concept. She enjoys dabbling with different medias, tools and colours. Inspirations include nature/animals, and concepts surrounding women and feminism.
Now, in 2018, she has decided to take the plunge and pursue her dream of working as a Fine Artist full time.
