Teaching Artist

During his high school years in Hartford Victor was fortunate to attend art classes every day at the Wadsworth Atheneum, under the tutelage of artist Peter Waite. Following this experience, he entered his first year at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn with a full scholarship as a painting major. After five semesters he decided to try a different art school, and finished his Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1984.

Currently Victor is a member of the International Guild of Realism. He has won various national and international awards and his works are in private and public collections across the US and Canada. He has displayed in ten American museums in a show titled, “The New Reality, Realism in the 21st Century”. He lives in the house that his wife, MaryPat and he designed and built in 1988. Together they have raised three wonderful children. He currently teaches art at the secondary level in the Torrington School District where he has been honored as Teacher of the Year in 2010 and in 2015 was selected as the Secondary Art Educator by the Connecticut Art Education Association.
