Victoria Roberts, a Los Angeles, CA native, has worked professionally in a variety of arts including animation, graphic art, sculpture, and assemblage. Coming from an artistic family, her father, (John D. Wilson), an artist and animator, emigrated from England in the late 1940s to work for Walt Disney Studios, then founded his own Fine Arts Films in the 1950s.

By the early 1970s, Victoria learned the art of hand-painting animation cells and contributed to several animated segments for television including; The Sonny and Cher ShowThe Carol Burnett Show, and worked on animation for such films as Grease and Shinbone Alley. She the found an opportunity to develop her design sense as a graphic artist for a small design studio in Pasadena.

In 1987, Victoria began an artistic partnership with artist David Zweifel. During the 1980s and '90s, in their Ventura, California studio, they created elaborate ceramic and wood sculptures for exhibit and sale in galleries across the country. As a natural expression of the combined artistic skills she had thus far developed, Victoria began working in assemblage. Victoria also branched off in another direction -- she started a business selling art and antiques, and eventually managing major art shows including the Los Angeles Art Show, The Marin Show: Art of the Americas, The Great Southwestern Antique Show, and Brian Lebel's High Noon Show.

After years of working in the antique and art business, her focus inevitably turned back to assemblage art. Her current works are infused with the sensibilities she gained from her experience in both the art and antique worlds.
