All of my figurative artwork is rendered directly from live, posing models. I find many of these images can convey more than likeness alone. Some of my figures have inspired poems written by husband, Don Herzberg. The paired images and poems have been displayed in solo exhibitions in New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. The published version, “Body Language”, is available at TRPS in WRJ, VT.
Victoria Shalvah Herzberg signs her artwork with her middle name “Shalvah”, a name bestowed in hopes for peace in the concluding years of WWII. She grew up in Texas, moving to Missouri, New York, Louisiana, and Arkansas before finally settling in Vermont. Subjects for her artwork range from New England native plants to the human figure. She creates her images using many different types of media. She attained signature membership in the Vermont Watercolor Society in 2006 and is currently an artist member of Two Rivers Printmaking Studio (TRPS) in White River Junction, VT and AVA Gallery and Art Center in Lebanon, NH.
