Vicki's artist eye developed over many years of thoughtful and creative perspective. Drawn to art early, she took time out to focus on a nursing career and raising children. At 50, she returned to her childhood love of drawing and painting. Her caretaker history of patience and compassion draws her into the soul of her subjects. These skills come out in her work and draw people to it. The natural world is her chosen subject and her preferred medium is watercolor. Collage has become another way to express her creativity through color and texture. Vicki lives in Northern Colorado, an environment rich in beauty, extraordinary wildlife, and outstanding landscapes. She wanders out frequently to observe and cultivate her love of living things and to find her next subjects.
