Who is Victoria?

Victoria is a mixed media artist based in the UAE who graduated from the prestigious Fine Arts School in Poland and American University in Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah.

Victoria is known for her original and innovative Technique with the Palm Tree Fabric, exhibiting her artworks locally and internationally in the United Kingdom, Greece, Poland, and most of all, in the United Arab Emirates.

She was inspired by the UAE's rich history and nature, becoming the first artist to use the Palm Tree Fabric in mixed media artworks. Introducing a New Concept in her painting series: 'Flow of Nature', Victoria made the series representing Emirati and International Women based in the UAE.   

Her Artwork is appreciated for its uniqueness at many events and art exhibitions such as COP28, ADIHEX Abu Dhabi, World Art Dubai, RAK Art Festival, and many more.

"I’ve led a life fully devoted to ART.

It’s no lie to say I live, breathe, and dream of art."

Victoria loves mixed media, especially combining oil paints with sustainable materials.

Not limiting herself to her canvas, she always looks for a different base for her paintings, such as palm tree fabric, wood, resin, or attire fabrics.

She experiments by adding spices, sand, golden leaves, and dried flowers to create new textures to convey compelling stories in her artworks.


"My experience covers a wide range of media yet still, there's so much more to explore, although I have my own particular preferences that I keep coming back to, I'm an explorer at heart."

If my style speaks to you, I’d love to work with you in the future. Please be in touch to find out more and to discuss how we can collaborate.

Artist Statement

"I use oil paints and rugged texture to disrupt the purity of the blank canvas with realistic portraits and abstract shapes found in my dreams and imagination."

"I feature cultures such as the Emirates, its people, desert, and seascapes.
Keeping sustainability in mind, I use various materials to convey a message:

Embrace our Mother Earth as She embraced us in Her womb."

"My pieces unite the joy of abandon with color and earthy tones to create bold, multidimensional, daring artwork. 
Living in the Emirates, I am no stranger to vibrancy to let my work enchant others in this magical space I call home."
