Victoria Veedell captures the essence of nature by examining the effects of light
on form in the natural world. Known for her unique approach to the landscape that
focuses on relaying the emotional memory of a place, the fleeting moments in time,
Veedell's paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally and appear
in numerous private and corporate collections. Throughout her prolific career
spanning over 20 years, landscapes remain the focus of her work.
Participating in artist residencies is an integral part of her art practice.
She explores different landscapes which allow her to capture the dramatic shifts
in light and color in various regions and hemispheres in the world. Her paintings
not only record the fleeting moments of light in these diverse locations, but are
records of landscapes that are being permanently transformed by climate change.
Her travels have brought her to Japan, India, Iceland, Finland, Vermont, and
After receiving a BFA in painting from Texas A & M Corpus Christi, Veedell
attended L'Ecole Albert Defois, Association D'Ateliers D'Art Internationaux,

York University. She worked for over six years in galleries in New York City
before moving to Tokyo and spent two years exploring Japan and other parts of
Asia. A Houston native, she has resided in San Francisco since 2003.
While I don't have Nordic heritage, I did spend 5 years working for a Danish
gallery in New York. That's where I developed a curiosity and appreciation
for Scandinavia. While working at the gallery, I had contact with many Danes
in the art world and beyond from artists and galleries to collectors and
cultural officials. At the end of my tenure, I spent two weeks in Copenhagen.
Since that time, I have sought out and gone to different artists residencies
in Iceland and Finland to continue my study of the Nordic landscape, people
