Born in Belleville Ontario, Victoria Wonnacott has lived in Montreal since 1979. She has a B.A.in Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo and has studied sculpture at Concordia University. Victoria has taken part in many individual and collective painting and sculpture exhibitions in Quebec, Ontario and the U.S.A.
A recipient of two scholarships from the Ministere des Affaires culturelles du Quebec, her works are found in private and public collections such as Colart Collection, The Canada Council Art Bank, Loto-Quebec and the city of Montréal’s Foundation de la Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur.
Wonnacott is best known for her water themed paintings of swimmers and bathers in the pond, pool and shower.
“Abstraction and realism are executed with effortlessness, there is a reconciliation of technique and content, and the story grows. We quietly possess and identify with these works of art”. GPW
