Artist Victoria Roberts has spent several years in both the antique trade and field of visual arts. The melding of these two strong focuses have led to her work in sculptural forms, redirecting the meaning of found objects and introducing new perspective. Old things otherwise left in trash bins or lost in drawers are now joined together as the vehicle for a new communication.
