Largely self-taught, Vicki has attended several art retreats, workshops and classes in Victoria and Queensland, learning pastel, watercolour, acrylic and mixed media. She has exhibited in several exhibitions in Victoria and sold a number of paintings in several States of Oz.
Photography and travel both provide a wealth of inspiration. Vicki has been taking photos for many years, whilst living, holidaying and housesitting in many parts of Australia, as well as Asia, Africa and Europe.
She loves colour and leans towards painting the colours of the landscape. Many things excite her to paint: morning light, afternoon light, reflections, morning fog swirling around haybales, the grandeur of granite rocks, sunrise, sunset, a breathtaking view, big skies, stormy skies, oceans, rivers, local birdlife, native gums, the list goes on ….
Vicki loves working in pastels, watercolour, watercolour pencil, watersoluble crayons, acrylic and charcoal and is always experimenting and trying out new techniques.
