About The Artist

Having enrolled in Ringling School of Art’s graphic design program right out of high school, Vic enthusiastically embraced every class and graduated in 1976 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. Vic began his graphic design career in 1977 in Greenville, SC. While serving as senior art director at several advertising agencies and as senior art director at Michelin Tire Corporation, Vic garnered numerous awards for outstanding work. He continues to forward his graphic design career as a freelance graphic artist for several long-standing clients. 

Vic officially retired in 2022 and now pursues fine art as his full-time passion. He works in all mediums but prefers oil, acrylic and pastel. Vic finds landscape, portraiture, architecture and sculpture to be the most interesting and inspiring forms of subject matter to tackle. His piece Triumphant Rain won Best in Show, People's Choice, and Member's Choice in the 2023 CCAL Juried Show.

Artist Statement

During art school, the mantra I remember hearing over and over was: “Art is right-making.” Those four simple words stuck with me and helped shape my work ethic and my passion for giving my very best. Over the course of my career, I have learned that visual artists are translators of the world around us. Our personal interpretation of this world, through the tools and skills we possess, is intimate. It involves love, passion, skill, intensity, reflection, and ultimately, our very heart and soul. I believe artists aren’t copiers of our world, rather, we represent our world with struggle and travail and offer our viewers an alternate reality. Whether abstract or representational, our responsibility is to create a reality that inspires, elevates the spirit and puts forth the idea that beauty is all around us, especially during the most tumultuous of times.
