Victoria Brzustowicz is an award-winning  painter, illustrator, and graphic designer.

A native of Rochester, NY, Victoria Brzustowicz grew up in Brighton, with summers on the coast of Maine. She graduated from Wells College with a BA in Studio Art. At Wells she studied with noted painter William Roberts. She also studied printmaking at RIT.

Painting has always been central to her life, with other jobs to make it all possible, from teaching horse-back riding lessons, to teaching English as a Second Language while living and painting in Spain.

With extensive ad agency experience, she has her own freelance graphic design business, Victoria B Creative, and is the director of marketing and communications at the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House. She serves on the marketing committees for several not-for-profits, including Finger Lakes Thoroughbred Adoption Program.

Victoria is a co-founder and chair of the Greater Rochester Plein Air Painters, a chapter of the New York Plein Air Painters. Her introduction to the techniques of painting alla prima was through classes with Carol L. Douglas, who now lives and teaches in mid-coast Maine.

Victoria is also affiliated with Flower City Arts Center (formerly the Genesee Center for the Arts) where she teaches drawing and painting, and has offered linoleum block printing instruction.
