About Victoria Veedell
Victoria Veedell creates atmospheric landscape paintings capturing 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.

She’s been painting the landscape in one form or another for over 20 years. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Texas A & M and put in time towards a Master’s degree at New York University. Wherever she goes she sees something that moves her, captures her attention and compels her to share the moment in paint. She lives and works in San Francisco, California and often finds inspiration for her paintings while exploring local parks and areas along the San Francisco Bay. She is heavily inspired by her travels.

Travel is an important component in her work as it allows her to observe and compare gradients of color, light and atmosphere in different geographic locations. She has been a resident artist at Vermont Studio Center; Gullkistan Center for Creativity, Iceland; Kamiyama AIR, Japan; and Chitraniketin, India.

In 2017, she self produced “Winter’s Dawn: October in Iceland” an exhibition at the Arthouse Gallery in Sacramento. The paintings created were the result of her artist residency in Iceland. She exhibits her work nationally and internationally in galleries and art centers and her paintings are included in many private and corporate collections. She recently completed a commission for Sutter Health CPMC Cathedral Hill Hospital in San Francisco.
