Meet Victoria Flynn, our featured artist.
"I do not have a creative bone in my body." That is what Victoria believed all of her life until 1985. In that year, she came to possess a 35mm SLR camera. The instructions were not exactly self-explanatory. So she decided to take a class. One class led to another, then to a workshop, then to assisting commercial photographers in New York and Dallas. As it turned out, the camera possessed her.
Today, the passion continues, but in the digital realm. Whether a snapshot, an evolving studio still that assumes a life of its own, or an appointment with nature, she adapts to her surroundings. She has no distinct style other than a craving for variety. The infinite range of photography meets her needs. At times she has a specific plan, and at other times, fate and happy accidents are her guides. From concept through post-processing, there is a puzzle to be solved and a myriad of ways to go about it. The joy is in the journey, and her endgame is for the viewer to enjoy the results.
Victoria has been with American Airlines for 13 years, the last three at AA Publishing as an administrative assistant. She lives in the DFW area with her biggest fan, her husband, who keeps her supplied with ink and paper.
Victoria's talents are considerable. She represents the thousands of individuals at American Airlines who contribute to the fabric of cultures across the country and around the world. American is proud of Victoria Flynn and her colleagues. In the coming months, we will feature works of art from other employees
