Growing up in a small European town, my interest in art and nature was formed at an early age.
As a young girl most of the time, I could either be found out in the countryside exploring nature, or indoors occupied with creating art.
My name is Viktoria K. Majestic, I am a classically trained fine artist, living in North Carolina. I've studied art both in Europe and in the United States. My work has been largely influenced by the works of Zorn, Sorolla, Sargent and some contemporary masters.
Those times left a deep impression in me and became the foundations of my artistic journey and development.
Life took me on many different paths throughout the years and it wasn't until graduating from college with a business degree, that I came to realize how much I miss creating art and decided to pursue it as a career.
Following this life changing decision, I built a mural painting business, and worked as a mural artist for nearly a decade. However, an incapacitating back problem forced me to change course.
I could not have imagined giving up painting, so I searched for an alternative to large scale works. Traditional oil painting seemed to be the best choice. I dedicated several years to formal training in classical oil painting.
My teachers included John Phillip Osborne & Danielle Wexler master artists at the Ridgewood Art Institute, where I have studied for 4 years. I also took classes at the Art Students League of New York with Leonid Gervits and Jordan Sokol figurative artists.
Over the years, teaching and passing on my knowledge also became an important aspect of my life as an artist.
Currently, I am a member of Oil Painters of America, Muddy River Art Association and an elected member of the American Artists Professional League, where I also serve as a director of the national board.
