MEET THE ARTIST
Victoria Johnson is a native Southern Californian who is very inspired by the place she calls home. A career designer, commercial illustrator and emerging fine artist in the digital medium, since entering her first painting in a public competition at age seven, to earning an Associates degree in Commercial Art and Photography at Watterson College, creativity has been her calling.
Having once indulged in sketching and painting as a hobby, it wasn't long after her career as an independent designer blossomed that her brushes and canvases were traded for design softwares and hard deadlines. After being gifted a digital sketch pad and pen, The Sketchie Beast (her artist handle) was unleashed with a renewed passion for creating fine art in the digital medium; a logical next step on her creative journey. Since first putting digital pen to pad, she has created almost 400 artworks and has participated in many showcases, physical and online, locally and nationally, including two solo exhibitions. Recently, one of her art pieces was awarded a Director’s Best of Show at Meet the Artist Exhibition, San Bernardino County Museum. She has illustrated four children’s books, two of which are award-winning, and is a board member of the La Habra Art Association.
