Hey there! I’m Victoria Rinella, an artist, and I mean that in almost every sense of the word. From watercolors and dance parties at home to clay pinch pots and theater performances in summer camp, to drawing and singing with my sisters during high school and then illustrating and writing in college, art has always been a part of my life. Crafting and creating is simply what I do. I am the eldest of seven, love toucans, and my favorite places are Siesta Beach and Disneyworld. Above all though, my biggest passion is to encourage people to be their most authentic selves. I went to college at Ringling College of Art and Design with an illustration major and graduated with a BFA. While in college my sophomore year, I was introduced to hoop dancing and have been doing it for three years now. I can certainly say it is my favorite form of expression and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without it.
