Hi, I'M VIKTORIA
I am a visual artist and designer who calls a small town in the heart of the Canadian Rockies bordering Banff National Park home!
With an education in Photography + Design (Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Design in Photography from the Alberta University of the Arts) I built North Grove Creative - a commercial photography + digital content development company. With a strong editorial and advertising skill-set when it comes to image creation, I work with brands + agencies worldwide to build honest, unique + beautiful content.
I am also the product designer behind North Birch Grove - a fine art home decor brand. My innovative products + designs start from ideas dreamed up while I am on the hiking trail or snow slope. They can be proudly described as Made in Canada, Handmade and Locally Sourced. You can find NBG retail products in brick and mortar shops worldwide, and at holiday Pop Up Shops throughout Canada.
When not creating, I spend a lot of time hiking, and in 2014 founded Hike365, an outdoor + wellness community to bring women of all ages together to hit the trails for organized events in the Canadian Rockies + a Creative Camp in Norway.
The experiences that I have had within protected + unprotected areas while traveling have inspired me to give back through environmental stewardship opportunities with organizations that focus on conservation, sustainable community initiatives and environmental education. I love to volunteer my talents as a photographer for local and international organizations and hope that 2020 will bring me to new places where I can use my skills to share important stories with the world.
