Mill Valley, CA
Victoria Mimiaga, a San Francisco Bay Area artist, was born and raised in Honolulu. She has a B. S. Degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder. She studied art at the Honolulu Academy of Art, the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and the College of Marin in Kentfield.
After a career as a jewelry and textile designer, Victoria became a full-time painter. She has exhibited her work at Studio Gallery, Telegraph Hill Gallery and SF MOMA Artists Gallery in San Francisco and The Bartolini Gallery at Marin Center. Her solo exhibition, “Food in Plastic,” was held at Café Museo at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It chronicled the vast array of needless, redundant and amusing plastic receptacles used in packaging food. Victoria continues to portray plastic in her most recent series, Food in Plastic II, The Masters. Plastic becomes oddly out of place and comic when added to her copies of iconic old master paintings.
She has attended master workshops from a variety of artists, including Jove Wang, Randall Sexton, Peggy Kroll Roberts and Skip Whitcomb. Her work has been reviewed in SF Weekly, Victoria Magazine, Marinscope and California Home and Design.
Victoria is a member of the California Art Club, Oil Painters of America and BayWood Artists in Sausalito. Her full-time studio is at Mill Valley Lumber ,129 Miller ave. suite #621 Mill Valley CA. She lives with her family in Mill Valley, CA.
