Stained Glass on Live Edge Wood, Oil and Acrylic
Victoria D. Huntley
I was born in the Philippines. I attended university and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in
Economics. I worked for a large international shipping company, as secretary to the president of the
company. I immigrated to Canada in 1997 and have worked as a Customer Service Coordinator for a
Canadian Licensee for a large Canadian brand. In 2006 I moved to a community on the south shore of
Georgian Bay. Here, I live in a setting that is ideal for a landscape painter.
In 2012 I was able to spend a few winter months in California, that was when I started painting. Although
I am largely a self taught artist, I have taken courses from some internationally recognized artists. I am a
landscape artist and the medium I use is oil. The paintings I create are largely based on my photographs.
I enjoy the entire process from observing the landscape, to taking photos, to perceiving the composition
and transforming it with brush strokes to become a piece of art. I have been told I have a good eye for
colour. My use of bold colours has been the feature that has drawn the most favourable comments from
patrons of galleries where my paintings have been exhibited. Each painting I create requires dedication
and hard work. I like facing challenges and the feeling of satisfaction I get by overcoming obstacles in my path.
In 2019 I embarked on a new art form that I long dreamed of; stained glass art. Since then I have been
created a number of pieces of stained glass art on live edge wood and received very favourable
comments from galleries, artists and the general public..
