Victoria Twomey is an award-winning poet and artist. Her artistic work consists primarily of colored pencil drawings on paper and Giclée prints of her digital designs, created using her original photographs and scanned images as a source. While her intimate, feminine drawings are quiet and introspective with flowing lines and cozy scenes, her digital work is up close and intellectual, playing with the unusual combinations of objects.
