April, 2014


 Victoria Lansing 

Victoria Lansing was born and raised on a farm in Ossian, Iowa. Victoria was active in the 4-H Club, winning ribbons and serving as president. In High School, she enjoyed acting in plays. Victoria's sister and cousin were into painting but, as she said, "The only painting I did was the outside buildings and walls." Not until watching the Bob Ross show on TV”, did Victoria show an interest in artistic painting. 

After moving to Phoenix in 1967, she attended Phoenix College to study accounting.

She took art classes also, earning two degrees, Associated Sciences and Associated Arts. 

Ever busy, Victoria volunteered as a Candy Striper a number of years at Good Sam and was Vice President of MHT St. Vincent De Paul Society, helping the homeless and organizing food drives. She went to work at Barrows in the accounting office and eventually opened her own accounting business.    

Victoria has also been President and Treasurer of her Home Owners Association. Alice Okoneski introduced her to the PAG and Victoria began lessons with Elaine Waters.  She has been involved with the board and recently did an audit of the books. 

Victoria works in oil and acrylics. Her other pastimes are golf, bowling, knitting, sewing and reading. She tells an interesting story of her great-great-great-great grandfather who went to war with Napoleon and that his mother promised if he came back alive a church would be built. Still standing, it is known as the smallest

church, seating only eight people. Victoria edits the church newsletter for annual descendants reunions. She loves all forms of art, but is drawn to water and feels relaxed when painting water scenes
