bio / cv

VC Torneden is a visual artist who works in multiple mediums. Her art explores various themes related to the human condition, especially psychological and emotional ties with each other and the world around us.

Through both analogue and digital techniques, VC Torneden’s photography most often explores themes of isolation, memory, divinity and mortality. Building on a travel heavy background and a fascination with vanishing Americana, she frequently uses location specific photography to convey these themes.

VC Torneden’s work has been featured in various publications and displayed in multiple galleries. Her formal training in the arts began in early childhood and extended into study as a young adult at the University of New Orleans and Memphis College of Art. Her background includes education and work experience in painting, illustration, advertising design, and photography.

She works from a home studio in rural Oklahoma where she lives with her husband and two beautiful children.
