Born in Stirlingshire Scotland, Vicki travelled extensively as a child with her family then spent several years in London before returning to live in Scotland 24 years ago. She now lives and works from her studio in Uddingston.
'A lot of Vicki's work is inspired by her love of animalsand she has a particular fondness for Highland Cows. Vicki will sketch and photograph whenever something catches her eye which then inspires her to paint them on canvas using Acrylics and pastels, each animal is named and she considers them all individual characters.
In the past couple of years Vicki has been venturing into mixed media and has thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with different layers and textures, these pieces reflecting her emotional response to places and light and often include poetry and photographs in their layers.
