Dionne Victoria is a Chicago artist whose artwork is a meditative tool to heal and express the internal landscape of the soul in an external world. Her artwork can be viewed nationally and she has exhibited internationally. Dionne Victoria has exhibited in the United States Congress Library for a year as well as in the Museum of Science and Industry on numerous occasions. Currently, her art can be viewed at the Zhou B Art Center where her studio is located. She traveled to South Korea where she taught English, using art. While there, she started art as a therapy group with other international teachers suffering from culture shock. Once returning to the states she started volunteering at the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center doing art as therapy with young men who were in the middle of determination. As her love of science grew, she began developing a science-arts integration curriculum while teaching at SkyArt, Northwestern University Center for Talent and Development as well as her at own art studio, Dionne Victoria Studios, INC. Securing her Masters in Teaching from the University of Chicago opened the door to working with teens on a more in-depth scale. She began partnering with the University of Chicago's Art Incubator teaching the skills necessary to operate an arts organization.
