Vicki’s work is excellent. She is a delightful person and outstanding communicator. We are excited to choose another project for her to complete for us.

Vicki was amazing to work with and really embraced the project I was looking to create. She was always quick to reply and did a fantastic job with the artwork.

About
I am a British Portrait Artist, my artwork ranges from small detailed pencil portrait to larger acrylic murals, all predominately focused on realism. I experiment with materials and enjoy using innovative technology to bring the portraits to life. I have incorporated electronic paint into my art which makes the murals interactive - it was wired to speakers so when the mural was touched the portrait would speak. I have recently begun free handing spray paint murals and have completed pieces through Gippsland and Melbourne, including in Hosier Lane. I am also a registered Art Therapist, this knowledge has influenced my artwork in the way I explore materials, symbols and archetypal imagery in my portraits. I have run Art Therapy Groups on Inpatient Psychiatric Units and continue to work with individuals- in England and Australia. I also teach Paint for Fun classes to groups for teams and the public in Melbourne and over zoom to people from all over the world. I am very comfortable doing live painting and sharing the experience of art making with others. I have exhibited Artwork throughout England including in Brick Lane (London) and in Melbourne. I have been doing commissioned Portraits for over a decade and won art competitions throughout England and Australia - including most recently coming 3rd Place in Space2b Gallery Annual Portrait Competition. I look forward to continuing and growing my passion with art and hearing the projects you have in mind. .

I can replicate designs if it suits my style

Pick me for these projects! :-

I love working on jobs that are a challenging and outside the box - portraits are my passion and I always strive to improve my technical skill with each new one. I also enjoy working with people and working in a setting where the art is used to bring everyone together and encourage a positive, therapeutic experience.

I'll sit these ones out :-

I am open to painting things that aren't portraits,   but that doesn't excite me as much. However,   I am open to hearing ideas.
