Artist Bio

The Reverend Dr. Victoria Marie is originally from Brooklyn, New York.  She has called Canada home since 1965 and Vancouver since 1979.   Victoria (vikki) Marie defines herself as a late blooming, self-taught watercolour artist. Her visual art journey began in November 2020 at age 75.  As she grows closer to joining them, Victoria feels compelled to form a relationship with her ancestors through art.  She portrays the strength and compassion of the people who came before her by painting the female deities they held sacred before they were colonized by non-endemic religions.  Her media of choice are watercolour, gouache, and other water compatible mediums, on paper and on Egyptian papyrus substrates. An ongoing project that is close to her heart is painting endangered species.  She occasionally blends these two interests by painting the ancestral female deities along with endangered species from their respective regions.  Her work has been shown at the following:
