"Company Christmas Party - Company Christmas tells the real story of what happens at Santa's Christmas party. *Santa like any good boss is completely tanked off of a Keg of Nog. *Mrs. Clause concerned with the safety of her hard working olives is collecting sleigh keys. *Rudolph can party no more so he is passed out with his drinking buddy. *Of course there is always one or two people who get a little to drunk to early. Our lady olive is passed out in the corner while a not so sober olive draws a funny face on her and who can forget the crazy drunk running around with a kick me sign on his back. *There are always those olives who like to hook up at the company party. The 3 olives in the corner are toasting to seal the deal. *The martini glass is decorated to the hilt with Christmas light, and what Christmas party would be complete with out a Peppermint Candy Martini to keep the party going till the wee hours or however long these olives can last. *Santa's naughty list is definitely growing after this party. Are you on Santa Naughty or Nice list? "

Artist Biography:

Born in Mexico City Exhibited since 1972 in the US, Europe, Mexico and Japan

“When I draw I disconnect myself from everything and it is a delight” states Victoria. “In my Childhood I was uninterested in conventional life and I felt there must be a higher Reason for things. I thought life was boring until I understood that it was up to me to give life more meaning.” At that period in her life, Victoria chose a difficult path She decided to paint with total integrity without submitting herself to the judgment of the market, to the expectations of others or committing to a style.

In late 1983,Victoria moved from Mexico to New York where she had contact with one of the largest Galleries in the untied States to develop lithographic works. While there, she studied and worked with a complicated technique to produce high quality lithographs.

During one of the workshops in New York, she met the noted surrealist painter Lenora Carrington with whom she shared many enriching experiences. Victoria’s knowledge and sensitivity enabled her to create and produce highly unique works that resulted in all her print editions selling immediately.

During that period, Victoria’s talent became widely known in the United States. In addition to selling a large number of lithographic editions, she sold approximately three hundred original paintings. However, in spite of her success Victoria decided to return to Mexico.  Over the next few years she worked ardently in her homeland and developed a new style outstanding for it’s unique oil paintings and serigraphs on textiles.

In the mid 1990’s Victoria began work with various art galleries in the Unites States. She returned to New York with the sole intention of painting flowers. Her idea acquired large dimensions through her magnificent brush and was executed with great skill and abundant creative passion. “ I decided to make flowers the focus of my attention,” says Victoria from her Manhattan studio. “

I really wanted to explore and go inside their world. Find all the textures, layers, and passages of just one flower. They are small universes and I feel captured by their beauty. Flowers are an incredible way for nature to show the infinity of existing colors.
