Artist Bio

Victoria Suppan (England, 1978) grew up in Switzerland and lived in France before moving to Geneva to study Landscape Architecture. She is now living in Switzerland, near Neuchâtel.

From a young age Victoria followed art courses in Switzerland and France before completing a technical degree in textile design at the Ecole de Tissage in Lyons.
After working in one of the R&D studios for Hermes France creating luxury fabrics for apparel and interior design, she chose to return to college to further her education in Landscape Architecture.
She spent a life-changing year in Dublin, Ireland on an exchange course in UCD.

Some of her main inspirations are Tolkien, John Howe, HR Giger, Leonora Carrington, Noah Bradley, Robin Hobb, José Roosevelt ...

Today she is working as freelance artist and has a wide variety of projects such as painting, illustration, tattooing, graphic design, book covers, as well developing a personal style through courses focusing on traditional mediums and imaginative realism.
