Vicki developed a love of Art from a young age, this grew into a passion to perfect and capture emotions through portraiture. This developed into a fascination on how Art can be a powerful tool to communicate, explore and understand the Psyche.
Vicki went on to study Fine Art at Oxford Brookes University and later completed a Masters to become a registered Art Psychotherapist. Vicki learnt the Psychodynamic and Physiological theories on how Art can regulate the nervous system and be a visual language to represent the conscious and unconscious.
Vicki now uses Art to meditate, regulate emotions and express experiences through symbolism and Archetypal imagery. Commonly seen through the use of Portraiture and balance between controlled/fluid mediums. This is a constant evolving process, informed by research and continuing exploration.
Vicki has taught recreational Art classes in England and Australia and has exhibited throughout England (London, Derby and Oxford). Now based in Blender Studios, Vicki has progressed to larger mural work across Australia and New Zealand.
