Victoria Elena, Self Portrait: July 2016

Victoria Elena





I’m a photographer, illustrator, and oil painter who has a deep appreciation for the darker things in life. I’m based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I studied art history at the University of California Santa Cruz and I graduated in March of 2013. My main areas of focus were the Italian Renaissance and the Northern European Medieval period, though I love all things Victorian. Since graduating, I’ve used this space to catalogue my art process and thoughts.

Follow along to see what it’s like in the artist’s studio.

You can find me on a number of platforms, including Instagram and Facebook.


I’ve also dabbled in a little bit of film. This is a nice introduction to my style:


And for the curious, you can watch me render Vincent Price here:
