Victoria Veedell’s paintings are like memories, suggesting landscapes not necessarily seen but felt. They are an emotional response to the environment. She wants to share the way she sees and feels when she is out observing in nature. Her fascination with the way light affects color and atmosphere keeps her excited to continue to explore and paint new landscapes. She feels like the possibilities are endless and hopes to create a sense of stillness and serenity.

Her inspiration comes from her travels both near and far. Travel has become an important component in her work as it allows her to observe and compare gradients of color, light and atmosphere in different geographic locations. Victoria’s travels have taken her through many places such as Iceland, Shanghai, Kerela (India) and Japan. Whether it’s overseas or around her home in the San Francisco Bay Area, she gathers ideas by taking walks and recording her observations with photography and watercolor studies. These become the memory of place and source of inspiration. She makes all of her oil paintings in the studio on canvas, paper or wood panel.
