hi, i’m Victoria!

Founder + artist

I've been an artist since forever. At eight years old, I drew my first graphics with Microsoft Paint on an old IBM computer that took about 15 minutes to boot. Those early collections still exist on a floppy disk somewhere in my parents' basement. I spent years experimenting with different mediums until I taught myself Adobe Illustrator, thanks to YouTube and a very encouraging spouse.

Artist Statement

On new work

In the spring of 2019, what started as a happy little accident began a series of study on the relationship between people and color. The associations that bind our realities and shape our human experience exist in a network of collective consciousness designed by concrete and steel, assimilation and imitation. My color palette brings life to human subjects on a two dimensional page, inspiring adventure and excitement in a diverse miniature world.

Palmesque

Brand Mission

Palmesque is a lifestyle brand focused on inspiring others to fully enjoy their lives and let go of daily anxieties. I believe that many of our individual, social, and economic issues could be improved by addressing a growing mental health crisis. My designs are inspired by minimalism, Miami, and often involve lots of sass and sarcasm. My mission is to create nostalgic products that take you to your happy place.

10% of profits are donated to non-profits that support access and research to mental health.
