Victoria Cole, painter and mixed media artist from Greenville, SC, received her B.F.A from Winthrop University in painting and drawing. After graduating, her husband and she moved to the Triangle and fell in love with the area. Since then, she has been working on several series of paintings and drawings. Many of her works reflect her interest in bright colors and bold shapes as she experiences them in the natural world. More recently, she has been fascinated by the female form and has begun a series of works to explore the art of figure painting. She generally uses acrylic paint and ink in the pieces, but never shies away from using paper, magazine clippings, or whatever else may spark her interest. This is her first time showing since graduating college.
