Born on October 25, 1982, Victoria Frances is a Spanish illustrator influenced by Gothic Romanticism and pre-Raphaelite paintings. Her masterpieces also take inspiration from Luis Royo’s and Gerald Brom’s works.
Victoria studied Fine Arts at the Facultad de Bellas Artes de San Carlos while working as an illustrator and designing various book covers and other commissioned pieces.
On the 23rd of April 2003, her first illustrated book, Favole, was released. It was a dark and sweet remembrance of Verona, Venice and Genoa.
Later on, she returned to her university to continue studying art. After her very first public appearance at the Salo del Comic fair in Barcelona on March 8, 2004, she released Favole II and Favole III.
Her most recent published work of art is entitled El Corazon de Arlene (Arlene’s Heart) published in 2008.
Here are a few examples of Victoria’s beautiful illustrations.
