Vivian Tserotas has been working as a full time artist since completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts and her Bachelor of Education degrees. She has also been teaching for the Thames Valley District School Board and created a textile arts program, which she taught at Fanshawe College. Seven years ago, she started and became the co-owner of the Art Gallery of Lambeth where she continues to teach her craft and is the head curator and the educational arts programmer.
Although her studies involved contemporary sculpture installation, and painting, today she is primarily known as a textile artist and most recently a glass artist.
Her work continues to evolve as she enjoys pushing the limits of her medium and combining various materials to create unique pieces of art. The challenge of the unknown and the process of problem solving is what intrigues Vivian to create and also why she never duplicates her work. Vivian’s artwork can be distinguished by her signature use of vibrant colours, and the illuminating energy flowing from her stiches into whimsical swirls. These same elements are also recognized in her fused glass creations. Vivian’s work is spontaneous and full of life allowing the viewer to experience her passion, enthusiasm and her laborious love for her art form.
