Members' Portfolios > Victoria Fuller

Chicago based artist, Victoria Fuller was born and raised in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania. She moved to Colorado, after college, and while pursuing an art career, received a fellowship award from Colorado Council on the Arts and Humanities. Earlier in her career, Victoria lived and exhibited in New York City, but returned to Colorado to finish work there. She moved to Chicago to pursue an MFA degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and graduated in 1994, and in 2000 she was awarded a fellowship grant from the Illinois Art Council. Victoria pursued an interest in Natural Science Illustration, and some of her designs have been published in the Guild of Natural science handbooks and periodicals.

Victoria has created several high profile large-scale public works. Her sculpture, Shoe of Shoes, is owned by Brown Shoe Company, in St. Louis, and she was commissioned by Sound Transit in Seattle to create Global Garden Shovel, a large bronze shovel made from cast and fabricated plants from all over the world - in the shape of a shovel - reflecting the geographic location of ethnic groups living in the Rainier valley. She continues to make her appropriated and common object work that reflects natural forms. Her most recent large-scale work, Canoe Fan, made from recycled canoes, is now installed in Gallup Park in Ann Arbor, MI.
