Inspired by the natural world...
"I grew up in a charming 1850 home we shared with my grandparents near Pittsburgh, PA. My grandfather, who farmed the land and raised chickens, taught me how to identify plants on our hikes together. My mother's joy in painting and the arts taught me to be visually aware, and my father's love for birds kick-started a lifelong curiosity for the expansive beauty of the bird and animal world."
Vicki's career was established with a degree in art from Penn State University, which led to work in graphic design, handmade doll creation, and professional mural painting. During her mural painting years, she developed a portfolio of hundreds of murals featuring birds, insects, animals, grasses, and wildflowers. Her experience confidently led her to move into canvas painting of the natural world. This switch, made fifteen years ago, marked the beginning of her expansive career as a fine art painter with a growing library of over 2,500 works.
"I want my work to evoke feelings of peace, joy, and often humor.
If I can move someone with my art then I have achieved my ultimate aim."
Some of Vicki's work is also showcased at the galleries listed below. Please contact them for more information.
