Hi! I’m Victoria

Artist, Designer/Patternmaker, Surface Designer, SkillShare Teacher & Writer

Hi! I’m Victoria, an Artist, Designer/Patternmaker, Surface Designer, SkillShare Teacher & Writer born in Auckland, NZ, now happily residing back in Sydney, Australia after two very long stints in England over the years.

I used to work in the extremely exhaustive and ‘precious’ upper echelons of fashion as a couture & tailoring Designer/Patternmaker until one too many migraines ensured I give the long hours away permanently. I now only freelance as a P/M for a few very special clients, now returning to my first love of art, teaching and writing. Happiness is heaven!

Actually, I haven’t quite let fashion escape me completely. You can find my art on my Cheetah wraps and anything I produce with my cheetah art will have a percentage go towards the cheetah conservation.

My other takeaway from fashion is that I still tutor in Patterncutting, I absolutely love teaching and I’ve just produced my very first class for Skillshare, with many more to come. I love showing students how they can make their own fabulous designs to fit themselves perfectly, look amazing and confident and not break their bank account!

Do have a look here, you’ll be so surprised at what you can do with a blank piece of paper and a few tools!
