Around 15 years ago, Victoria quietly mentioned me that she had once been a commercial artist & illustrator in the 1980s & 90s. But what impressed me was that she had also been the official re-illustrator of May Gibbs ™ for Angus & Robertson and children’s charities named in Gibbs’ estate, for nearly a decade in those years! I was intrigued to see Victoria’s vast personal collection of original draft book illustrations, which included the gumnut babies, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, in the May Gibbs’ tradition!

Since then she has been quietly working toward achieving a dream of one day opening her own artist’s studio. Over the years I’ve watched as Victoria has unleashed her creativity in multiple artistic forms, whether it be portraiture, clay busts or chiselling marble – she’s done it all. Victoria is one incredibly talented artist.”
