Victoria Topping has worked with designing the identity of an independent record label; designed and made many bespoke wallpapers; hand painted murals; been an interior designer and designed and installed a record shop, club and created the artwork for several festivals. Her work has found its way on to a successful greetings card range and even on to a nice bottle of french wine. Above all her favorite thing is to create and sell prints and original works through her online shop
She draws inspiration from her passion for music, specifically Jazz, Soul, Funk, Disco and World music. This vibrant scene has given her an everlasting source of joy and focus. She collects records and any visual snapshots she can find of the musicians and dancers she admires, from her favourite avant jazz composer Sun-Ra right through to her favorite disco star Sylvester, and even dipping in to the colour palette of Soul train.
Future aspirations include being art director of the universe as well as creating the artwork for a Grace Jones album
When not working Victoria can be found hanging out with her daughter Jazzy dancing around the living room in kimonos listening to old records
I always try and add a bit of ‘Joie de Vivre’ to everything I do and I hope that is something that people can take away with them.
