Published in Issue No. 281 ~ October, 2020

Victoria J. Fry is a NY based artist creating large-scale, abstract paintings using beeswax & oil paint.

Victoria approaches painting with a willingness to experiment using a variety of materials and methods to unearth new discoveries. Inspired by organic forms, her beeswax paintings embody the colors, textures, and movement of the natural world. Using wax, oil, and wood, Victoria creates atmospheric landscapes that capture the wildly unpredictable elements of nature.

Victoria received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2012, with a concentration in painting. After graduation, she was selected to be part of the Guggenheim Museum’s Learning Through Art program, where she taught elementary students within the museum, as well as at PS.9 in Brooklyn, NY.

In 2014, Victoria received her Masters of Arts in Teaching degree from Maine College of Art. Upon graduation, she moved to California to continue painting and teaching art in San Francisco, Oakland, and Los Angeles. She returned to the East Coast in 2019 to teach art in Stamford, CT. Victoria is a practicing artist as well as a teacher. She has exhibited her work in New York City, New Jersey, and California. When she’s not in the classroom, she can be found creating beeswax & oil paintings in her studio.
