About the Instructor

Victoria Brzustowicz is an award-winning painter and illustrator. A native of Rochester, NY, Brzustowicz graduated from Wells College with a BA in Studio Art. At Wells, she studied with the painter William Roberts.

Abstract painting was Brzustowicz's focus for most of her career, but in 2015 she was introduced to the techniques of painting alla prima through classes with noted plein air painter Carol L. Douglas. Since then she has focused on plein air painting, and has attended workshops with Lori Putnam, Sarah Linda Poly, Ken DeWaard, Hiu Lai Chong, Robert J. Simone, and Kari Ganoung Ruiz. Her work explores the line between abstraction and representation, with an emphasis on surface and mark-making.

Brzustowicz is co-founder and chair of the Greater Rochester Plein Air Painters, an inclusive, active group of painters that get together throughout the year to paint outside of the studio. She is affiliated with Flower City Arts Center where she teaches drawing, painting, and linoleum block printing.
