Victoria moved from Salt Lake City to Moab in 1995 and was very proud of the life she created here. She was a gifted and talented artist, gardener and astrologer. Victoria could often be found out exploring with her dog and camera, taking pictures of Moab’s beautiful landscapes to bring home and put into her pastels. In 2014, she joined the Moab Gallery, a cooperative gallery for local artists. The Gallery gave Victoria a place to display and share her beautiful talent with the world. She influenced many lives with her gift of astrology, she had clients from all over the world who would call on her for advice and guidance. Victoria had an eye for nature and beauty and poured her love and creativity into her gardens and various landscapes around town.
