A Little About Me

If you're looking for original oil paintings, well, I'm glad you're here!  We as artists love sharing our art with you! 


Throughout my website, you will find my original oil paintings on canvas, panel, and board.  I use brushes, palette knives, and sometimes, lots of fun texture!

I hope my paintings speak to you, the way they speak to me as I'm painting them.  Each painting has a story, and I love telling those stories!


I would also love to share my journey with you!  So, here goes...

Over the last 30+ years, I have attempted many things, but never achieved the success or gratification that I always saw in my dreams.  I've been everything from a vacuum cleaner salesperson (not joking!) to a fresh cut flower farmer, to selling everything from candles to jewelry.  I'm an avid DIY gal too, so I have lots of fun projects...sitting around waiting to be done!  Ha!

Well, in 2011, a friend (and artist) from our church, introduced me to a lady in town that offers painting lessons.  Before long, I was in class learning from a professional artist.  From my 1st painting, I was hooked. I had finally found my passion...oil painting!

So, that's how it started...and now, I find myself in my studio every day, planning my next painting, and of course, painting!  I see the world differently these days; full of beauty, vibrancy, and such a Glorious palette of colors.  Since sharing my first painting…. friends, loved ones, and new acquaintances alike, continue to encourage and inspire me. But, I have to say, my husband is definitely my Biggest Fan!!  Love that guy!

The last 6+ years, I have painted Photo Realistic, using photos from travels in the US, and abroad, and even in my own back yard!  I especially love the photos my husband takes in his travels to Haiti and Guatemala.   

I recently started a new chapter in my painting journey!  While I still paint commissioned photos realistically, I also paint in a more Impressionistic style!  I took several classes, and my painting world has been rocked!!  I'm in love with the new style of using bold and brilliant colors to paint happy flowers and gardens! 

Thanks for reading, and looking around!

Many Blessings,

Vicki
