Vicki paints images that speak to the power and majesty of the west coast. Her choice of subjects reflects the environment she has interacted with all her life. "I like to capture a mood in my paintings. I play with light by juxtaposing warm and cool colors to create depth, movement and luminosity. My work is a search to find the elusive spark of life that stops you in your tracks, leaving you to gape in wonder at the beauty of this world." Born in Vancouver, B.C. Vicki currently lives and works full time from her studio in Lynn Valley, North Vancouver. In 1990 she received a Diploma of Fine Art from Emily Carr University and was a recipient of The Helen Pitt Award. She attained a Post Graduate Diploma from Cyprus College of Art in Lemba, Cyprus. Vicki’s work has been placed in many private collections: Davis LLP, Odlum Brown, Bosa Developments, Clark Wilson Law firm, RBS, Powerex , Chateau Whistler Fairmont Hotel.
