In her paintings American visual artist Victoria Veedell explores how colour and light affect space and the physical sense of place. Her atmospheric landscape paintings capture the fleeting moments of light in nature. The root of her work is an emotional reaction to the environment, implying landscapes not necessarily seen but felt.
Veedell has been painting the landscape in one form or another for over 20 years. She is originally from Texas and now lives and works in San Francisco. Veedell has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Texas A & M University and is currently completing a Master’s degree at New York University.
Travel is an important inspiration and component in Veedell’s work as it allows her to observe and compare gradients of colour, light and atmosphere in different geographic locations. In the past she been a resident artist for example in Japan, India and Iceland. Veedell has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in galleries and art centres and her work is included in many private and corporate collections.
