About Victoria Blouin
Victoria Blouin is a watercolour painter, oil painter, and printmaker from the Cowichan Valley. Her artwork explores themes about nature, fantasy, body positivity, and the human form.
Victoria recently graduated from Vancouver Island University, earning her BFA (Bachelor of Arts). She is a board member of the Cowichan Valley Arts Council and is on their Youth and Family Committee which focuses on providing art programs for local youth.
Her family comes from Montreal, Quebec where she was born in 2001. She was 3 years old when her family moved out west to the Cowichan Valley located on Vancouver Island. Art has always been an important part of her life, an interest passed down on her mother's side of the family.
Both her mother and grandmother encouraged Victoria’s interest in art ever since she could hold a paintbrush. Her mother confessed that this was the easiest way to keep Victoria quiet and busy as she was quite a handful.
Victoria’s great-grandmother is a big influence on her life as an artist. Unfortunately, she passed away when Victoria was young, so she does not remember her well. Victoria inherited some of her great-grandmother’s paintbrushes and paintings, which allows her to feel connected to her great-grandmother and continues to inspire her passion for art.
Victoria has been exhibiting work in a variety of group shows in the Cowichan Valley region.
