ABOUT ME

My name is Victoria Long, otherwise known as Vika, and I am a burgeoning graphic artist and designer who uses beautiful Laguna Beach and travel adventures as inspiration. My projects and interests are multifaceted and multidimensional, and include drawing from still life and live models; exploring mediums such as oil paint, watercolor, charcoal, graphite, and ink; conceptual and nature photography; typography; 2D and 3D design; computer graphics; packaging, woodburning, videography, motion graphics, and brand identity. 

 

My creative career began in Laguna Beach High School, blossomed at Saddleback Community College, and flourishing at Laguna College of Art and Design where I am graduating in 2019.
