Victoria Carley is a Landscape Architect and textile artist working in Toronto. Victoria started her career as an artist before returning to university and graduating with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from the University of Toronto. She then put aside painting to focus on building her professional practice, specializing in city gardens and country properties. Unexpectedly in the early 2000s, Victoria began sewing and gradually developed her particular style of textile art.
