Born in Britain and since moving to Cape Town in 2002 Vicki has found a true rainbow nation of cultures and nationalities. This provides her with a seemingly unlimited supply of fascinating subjects to paint both from chance encounters and from life painting in her studio.
She works mainly in oils and pastels, specialising in portraiture. Her love and interest in portraiture was inspired by her Grandmother, herself a talented artist, who encouraged Vicki to paint and sculpt, taking her on numerous Sunday afternoon visits to the National Portrait Gallery, Trafalgar Square in London.
However, figurative works, still life and landscape are also part of her oeuvre. Sculpture has become more meaningful to Vicki as a way to depict form in a holistic manner. But still her greatest enjoyment and satisfaction comes from her workshops interacting with other artists at all levels.
She exhibits internationally and her works are in private and corporate collections in England, South Africa, USA and Dubai.
