Happy Mothers Day to all you mums out there!
Here’s a little something I painted for my mum for this years mothers day!
I created her using watercolour and tea (for the background) and some shimmering gold ink for the accents.
My mum loves it! I’m thinking of painting more carousel horses in the future.
You can buy prints, clothing and home wares featuring this artwork over on Redbubble!
Here’s a selection of my Christmas designs from this year!
You may recognise the first one as “Lady Christmas” I gave her a bit of a revamp!
Thank you for making my 2016 awesome! For the likes, comments and shares on social media, the orders on etsy, redbubble and commissions and of course just for following my journey as an artist and enjoying my art and illustrations!
I especially want to thank those who ordered some commissions. I enjoy creating something that is special to someone and that they will frame and cherish for life. You also have given me some new skills, it’s a great way for me to get out of my comfort zone and experiment a bit more with styles and techniques!
I also want to thank the Facebook page “Gothic & Enchanted” for sharing my art at the start of the year. This definitely gave me a confidence boost and that my art is worth something!
Who knows what 2017 will hold?
I am currently working on a book cover which is most definitely testing my skills, a few unfinished paintings and some new things planned for Entwine Handmade too! I’m very excited!

I have been busy perfecting my galaxy painting skills – what better subject to use to practise with than Star Wars?
This one was particularly difficult as I am used to painting galaxies in 3+ colours but this one used only 2!
You know me, I see a challenge and it’s CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!
I love how this one turned out and I can’t wait to start putting my new galaxy skills to the test with my own characters!
Here’s a few other paintings where I have used galaxies and pretty colourful night skies!

If you follow me on Facebook, you will already know that I’m quite obsessed with the band Gloryhammer! I painted the Hammer of Glory as an anniversary gift for my partner – he’s a huge fan too!
It’s also a shiny but unfortunately scanners don’t pick these things up! I’ll have to make a video!
Anyway, make sure you check out Gloryhammer if you’re into fantasy and powermetal – this won’t be the last you’ve heard of them from me!
Here’s my #ArtvsArtist!
Do you think I look like my characters? Some people say I do!
Some of these are available on VictoriaThorpeArt.etsy.com and VictoriaThorpe.Redbubble.com
“Dreamcatcher” Watercolour and Tea!
Inspired by my sisters dreamcatchers that she makes which are available in our Etsy Shop
Something nice and colourful for these dark winter days!
Painted with watercolour and my favourite – TEA!
There’s a little story about this robin – I moved house recently and as I was clearing up my garden, this little guy swooped down and started chirping! It was the cutest thing! He was there for about 5 minutes so I snapped a few photos to paint from!
Was a very special moment, I hope you like him!
My new painting of R2-D2!
May the force be with you!
