About the Artist
Victoria was born in Catacaos, Peru and lived in Lima until she came to the US in 1998. Victoria found an outlet for her creativity at an early age, while working for one of the most well-known film production companies in Peru. She learned the "ins and outs" of the filmmaking industry with renowned directors and, after 12 years, started free-lancing and producing her own documentary films. In the early 1990's, she directed the CIDECOS (Center for Research, Development, Education, and Social Communication) where she became involved in the development of educational materials and curricula for children and teenagers. Most recently, she has taught Spanish to children in various academic settings and has continued to produce educational materials to teach Spanish, such a television program named Como Jugando, which has been broadcast on Portland's Community TV Network and Portland Public Access Channel 2. She is involved in the Latin Community Council and is a frequent host on WMPG for programs of Peruvian music and culture. Victoria is looking forward to using her creativity in her work at The Language Exchange.
