Victoria Selbach | American Painter | Figurative Nude Paintings

Victoria Selbach loved painting and drawing from early childhood. She, from an early age, has been drawn to faces and was highly aware of Individual characteristics. While sitting at a table with companions, Victoria is likely to be the one sketching faces as the conversation percolates. Victoria studied drawing and pastel at the Carnegie Mellon Museum of Pittsburgh and continued on to art classes at Carnegie Mellon University. Her years at CMU provided a broad range of course work including drawing from live models and studying anatomy at the Pitt Medical School Morgue.

Victoria moved to New York City and graduated from Parsons School of Design with a degree in Fashion Design. Victoria worked extensively in the fashion industry.
There her love of color, texture and style, lead creative teams in the collage of orchestrating collections and building dynamic brands.
Victoria has traveled extensively abroad and is indebted to all the amazing faces that have fascinated and inspired her. A love of sketching and painting family and friends continually enriched her artistic expression.

In 2008, Victoria’s work exploded into strikingly modern, larger than life heads that capture the depth of the individual. Her series, 'Friends', shocks with the portrayal of visual strength and subtle inner beauty. The strong lighting and graphic approach to composition continue in her recent series, 'Nudes' as Victoria continues to explore the emotion deep within the human form.
