Initially a dancer, Victoria went on to train in Theatre yet found whilst meditating with a Tibetan Rinpoche that she found she could writes songs. Who knew! From there she headed to the desert and the heart of Australia. where songs in all genres poured out of her. What to do with these songs? Hence traveling north to Darwin to find a musician, this kicked off the RocknRoll decade and a dozen albums.
An amazing four-year journey followed and she was apprenticed to an Aboriginal elder with the Roper River Mob in Kakadu. More magic ensued and she ended up touring the length and breath of Australia in a band called Under the Spell of the Trees that was half aboriginal and had national airplay with their hit song called Will of Love, performing with the likes of The Clouds, Kate Celebrano, Things of Stone and Wood and the Bundu Boys.
Victoria is an Eco- Artist, Love Activist, Songstress, Juicy Creatrix and a Make- it- Happen -Mama! Though super grateful for this magical adventure and journey into the dreamtime, she needed to find her own roots and bloods history, as the Celt in her was hungry to find home. So she came to be living on Ancient Dartmoor in the UK for the last few decades. Saying that something is stirring again and she may be on the move – so watch this space!
