About the Artist ...

Victoria Duggan is a Philadelphia born artist currently pursuing her BFA with a focus on printmaking and drawing. Her work is greatly influenced by the spaces and people she spends time with. She treats her art as a way to make sense of her own thoughts and feelings with the hopes that others can find a sense of comfort or their own story within them. Her work has been featured in group exhibitions at The Demuth Museum, Lancaster, PA, Second State Press, Philadelphia, PA, and in multiple exhibitions at Millersville University, Millersville, PA.
