Artist of The Month Spotlight | Victoria Lee Conners

 

Victoria was first introduced to fiber arts and needle felting in June 2014 while volunteering in her hometown Rochester, NY.  Since then she has been honing the craft and art of needle felt as an independent artist and educator. Inspired by the outdoors and national parks, many of Victoria’s canvases showcase landscapes of the Finger Lakes Region as well as scenes from her travels across the country to Cayuga, Seneca Canandaigua Lake, and Yellowstone National Park. Nature is her center and capturing the beauty of nature is her source of meditation. We are thrilled to have these dynamic fiber pieces on 540WMain’s historic gallery wall.
