Hi, I’m Victoria also known as Sketchpad on Tour. I’ve always loved drawing from a young age and nowadays I enjoy nothing more than working on commissions that celebrate special places and occasions.

I have always appreciated the beauty of nature and the wonder of architecture that surrounds me and this continues to inspire my work every day. Most of my art is created in watercolour or coloured pencils on toned paper to capture the light, texture and atmosphere of my subjects. My work includes both local and recognisable locations from around the world, that can be purchased as prints or feel free to contact me if you’re looking for a personalised commission for you, or a memorable gift for a loved one.

‘Thanks so much Victoria. You've given me exactly what I had pictured and I'm thrilled to bits with it.’

The painting Victoria did for a family member’s home was absolutely beautiful… she captured a very special home perfectly and sent it quickly in time for Christmas. Thank you so much.

I first found Victoria/Sketchpad on Tour after seeing her sketches on Facebook, and I just loved the style of her work. I went om to follow her on Instagram. I had 3 pieces commissioned and each one captured that special memory. The detail and colours of the sketches were incredible and Victoria was able to bring the sketches to life which is a real talent.

Victoria did the most beautiful commission for a wedding gift for my best friends. She is so talented and recreated the perfect image of their wedding venue, her attention to detail is just incredible.

I was lucky enough to receive a commissioned piece by Victoria for my own wedding 2 years ago, I love the picture so much as it brings back memories of that special day.

I would 100% recommend Victoria for any special commissions, they really do make the perfect gifts!

Hiya! The painting has arrived and my parents love it! My mum actually cried. They’ve actually repainted the room in preparation for it so they can hang the paintings side by side!! Thank you so much xx


I discovered Victoria’s sketches on Instagram. I loved them, so I asked her if she would sketch our farmhouse in Kansas. She worked from photographs to create a beautiful and original rendition which captures the house and the magnificent sky of the Great Plains. It was a wonderful collaboration. My only regret is we never met in person. ❤️

This is a beautiful reminder of my home Rio de Janeiro. Victoria perfectly captured the iconic bar in town so I can forever remember away from home.

Our home looks beautiful in this piece of art that Victoria made for us; she clearly put so much love in it, including the painting of a tree that is not there anymore - it became an amazing memory for us!
