About the artist
Victoria Crowe studied at Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art, London, before being invited to join Edinburgh College of Art in 1968, where she taught drawing and painting until 1998.
Over the last 35 years Victoria Crowe, one of Scotland’s leading painters, has established herself as a painter whose work is instantly recognisable. While the full range of her painting covers landscape, still lifes, portraits, self-portraits and interiors, much of her work defies such precise categorisation.
She has been described as ‘one of the most vital and original figurative painters currently at work in Scotland’.
Her work is represented in a large number of public and private collections. She lives and works in the Scottish Borders and Venice.
