My name is Victoria Petchey, based in Felixstowe, Suffolk.

I mainly paint portraits of animals, however, I also create artworks that focus on women, wildlife, nature and animal exploitation.

I enjoy creating art that challenges our own personal feelings and ethics on particular subjects and request humans to think about such topics; environment, plastic pollution, women’s history and achievements, animal abuse and exploitation, etc.

The art material I use are vegan friendly and I use minimal paint to avoid waste.

I share my home with three rescue cats, Rosa, Eric and Dora. They’re a daily inspiration for me and I love having them nearby when creating artwork.
