The Scenic Route is the creative project of artist and textile designer Victoria

McGrane. Her intricately hand illustrated work is inspired by her love of travel as she

explores the amazing landscapes, colours, flora and fauna of Australia.

A daydreamer with a big imagination, Victoria best conjures up ideas when

surrounded by nature. That’s why she’s travelling around Australia in Daisy, a 1990

Toyota Coaster which has been lovingly converted into a motorhome. Her home on

the road, furnished with The Scenic Route textiles, is designed for off-grid living with

solar panels, solar battery storage and water tanks.

Her eco way of travelling reflects Victoria’s desire to minimise her footprint. This

passion for sustainability led her to team up with Rainforest Rescue, designing fine

art prints of the Daintree to raise funds for the not-for-profit. It’s also why she uses

eco-friendly and sustainable raw materials, minimal packaging and recycled

materials in her business wherever possible.

Being inspired by the ever-changing sights she comes across, Victoria channels this

into The Scenic Route. With her sketchbook tucked under her arm and her camera

at the ready, she observes the beautiful plants, animals, colours and landscapes that

cross her path.

With a background in visual arts, a distinctive creative aesthetic and a career in

fashion and textile design, Victoria has collaborated with notable European and

Australian brands to create unique surface print designs. At her happiest and most

productive when working on new prints, Victoria is available for commissions and

bespoke designs.
