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 and digital content development company. With a strong editorial and advertising skill-set when it comes to image creation, I work with brands and agencies worldwide to build honest, unique and 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 like to get out 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 and a Creative Camp in Norway.
The experiences while traveling that I have had within protected and unprotected areas have inspired me to give back through environmental stewardship opportunities with organizations that focus on conservation, sustainable community initiatives and environmental education. I also love to volunteer my talents for local and international not for profit organizations, and am always up to help tell their stories through my photography!
