Known nation wide for her innovative designs for the home decorating industry, Victoria Larsen has been featured in numerous issues of Better Homes and Gardens, Woman’s Day, Victorian Country Home, The Wall Street Journal, many books including Paint Saves the Day and The House that Faux Built and countless websites across the internet including BobVilla.com.
Victoria’s first love is drawing and home decor. She passionately approaches the creative process with unique ideas and strong motivation and has vast decorating and design experience. Growing up with an artist Mother, Victoria was surrounded by canvases, paints and brushes since the time she was 6 years old so becoming a stencil designer was just a natural path for a career.
“I love classic, beautiful designs and tend to incorporate that style into my stencil designs.
I also LOVE helping my customers create beautiful, elegant home decorating. It thrills me to receive the photos of decorating they have done with my designs. It’s also very rewarding to help them with application techniques so that they can achieve exactly the look they are after.
Whether it’s faux finishing, stenciling with paint, or creating raised designs, there’s so much I can offer my customers in the way of knowledge and ideas”.
Victoria started Victoria Larsen Stencils on her kitchen table in 1991. Within a single year, her designs were carried in every Ben Franklin craft store in Washington state and then progressing in to stores across the nation.
In 2002, Victoria released the first line of Raised Plaster Stencils to the home decor industry which became an overnight sensation. Since that time, her line of stencils has grown as has her love of the industry. Victoria has worked closely with top industry designers to assist in creating decor for clients all over the world. She looks forward to many more years of providing you with stencil designs that will create beauty in your own home.
