In 2009, she received the North Carolina Art Educators Association Elementary Teacher of the Year Award for the state of North Carolina.
Having worked from home for many years, to create her own art, she is very excited to be opening up her first independent art studio in downtown Raleigh. Victoria plans to use the studio space as a retail art gallery, an artist's working studio, and occasionally, as an art teaching space for children through adult students. Victoria is also very open to doing commissioned work in one of her many media and/or styles. The studio opened for the first time, for the First Friday Gallery Walk, on Janurary 7th, 2011.
