About Mercedes Victoria
 

Mercedes is a visual artist based out of Beachville, Ontario. She has an Honours degree in Psychology which constantly provides her with new insights on how to view, understand, appreciate, and respect individuals. She also majored in Art History and Studio Art.

Her preferred medium of chalk pastel helps look beyond the flesh and blood of strangers, getting to know them through their physical features instead of judgemental rumors, opinions, and beliefs. It is an opening to a new world that is both a liberating and frightening exploration of the human mind and heart.

She has taught many drawing classes and workshops for both children and adults, and is currently the Education-Coordinator at the Brantford Glenhyrst Art Gallery. She divides her time between Glenhyrst, volunteering at The Woodstock Art Gallery, and completing commissioned works as well as her own pieces.

Mercedes is a member of Central Ontario Art Association, Oxford Creative Connections, Tillsonburg Station Arts Centre, and The Woodstock Art Gallery.

 

Mercedes is available for commissioned artwork.
