Elected a Member of the RCA in 1992.Victor studied at Liverpool College of Art and Birmingham Teacher Trainining College.

"My senses are stirred by places and moments that conjure a spirit of romance, adventure, and magic. A wild gale at sea, some discarded boat that has served its time, or a moving patch of light are the stimuli for my paintings. The painting process is both intuitive and intellectual and I strive to produce work based on great and permanent principles of drawing, composition and colour."
