My name is Victoria Ayala, I am from Watts, California. I am currently living in Oakland, California. I earned my B.A. in Art Practice from U.C. Berkeley (2014).  

As an artist I have always sought to capture the raw essence of my subject matter. Whether it be the soul, charisma, personality, energy or emotion of someone or something, I seek to make these intangible characteristics visible through emphasized features, color scheme, and echoed lines.

I am the Artist Liaison and Website Coordinator for Emergent Art Space, and I teach Spanish in the Bay Area.
