Her art is known for featuring vampires, witches, and the occasional ghost. Miss Victoria draws inspiration from Gothic literature, the mysterious old world European cities, and Galician Forests that she fondly grew up with.
Miss Frances attended the San Carlos University in Valencia, Spain where she studied Fine Art. She started off designing book covers and began working on her first illustrated book Favole, which became a hit 2004 Saló del Còmic in Barcelona. She has since then become a hit, especially in the goth/horror community.

The Artist herself.
Here is an interview with Victoria Frances. It's in Spanish, so I haven't the faintest idea on what is exactly being said. Maybe this will motivate me to learn Spanish, well at least you all get to see some more pretty pictures.
Like, I said before Victoria published her first book Favole back in 2004 and then followed that up with Favole II and Favole III. You can purchase each book for under $20 a piece. Apparently, each book is a continuation of a story that is reminiscent to the work of Anne Rice. The books are nice because they hold the majority of Victoria's art, but I've been told that the writing is something less to be desired. Her artwork has been turned into paintings, puzzles, stationary, and she even has a tarot deck.
Her artwork seems to be fairly popular and is often liked by those who usually don't care for dark and semi-horrific artwork. In my opinion the artwork is beautiful and Victoria Frances is obviously a very talented artist, but I'm not nearly as fond of her as one would think. There is just something a bit off-putting about the majority of her artwork and even though I'm able to appreciate the overall workmanship and imagination Victoria has, I just can't bring myself to adore her as much as others have.
I'm sure those who are fans of romantic Gothic art will adore Victoria Frances,especially vampire lovers. Victoria Frances is sure early on in her career and has even come out with a new book called Arlene's Heart.
