Victoria Rolinksi

Victoria Rolinski was born in Adelaide and grew up at Henley Beach South where she still resides today overlooking the beautiful local coastline.

Victoria has an inherent love of our great Australian landscape that can be seen in her impressionistic paintings. She relishes painting the sand dunes along the coastline of our great State of South Australia and has empathy with coastal protection and conservation of the dunes. “Painting plein-air is the most rewarding and enjoyable way of painting. I have a heightened awareness of everything around me including perspective, light and atmosphere,” she says. Victoria believes the infinite beauty of nature is only revealed when painting outdoors.

“I want the painting to feel spontaneous and of the moment. Brushstrokes to be instinctive, spirited and textural. This is easier to achieve outdoors where there is a greater urgency because of the constraints of time, light and weather. I strive to paint with an observant eye and a loose hand!” Her greatest reward is the warmth of the viewer’s response when they see her work, which she hopes translates and expresses her feelings towards our beautiful country.

Art has always been a passionate interest.  Victoria was chosen as the first female cadet employed by the S.A. Police Department, joining as an artist at the age of 18 years and later becoming a Police Officer.

Victoria now works as a full time artist and has had great success in her exhibitions. Her work is represented in many public and private collections throughout Australia and she is heartened and encouraged by the response and the accolades received in appreciation of her work. “Painting to me is not only a passion but an obsession. People owning original paintings are definitely the lucky ones!  They seem to live and breathe any day over a print.”
