Victoria Horkan is a contemporary artist living and working in Leeds. Since 2006, her work has been exhibited in many galleries throughout England.

More recently, she has been using a raw, organic color palette depicting elements of movement. Her work intends to make an historical gesture by bringing her perceptions to the attention of tomorrow’s world, a contemporary world which celebrates the positive elements of today.
