Surrey Artist of the Year 2015 shortlisted artist
Vicky's strong images are created using collagraphs, an experimental form of printmaking. The prints are taken from plates which have been collaged with a variety of materials, card, fabric, paper, string, sand and anything else that may come to hand; it's recycling at its most creative! The plates are then sealed and then inked up and printed in intaglio or relief on damp paper using an etching press. The embossed textural quality of the print is unique to this method. The editions are variable due to the process and her desire to experiment, which means each print is unique, only the outline, the matrix is repeated, the colour and collage alters with each artwork keeping it fresh and vibrant.
Continually inspired by the small things in life, a collection of objects or a plant seen on a walk or in the garden, Vicky's prints are an atmospheric response to the beauty and fascination with things so often overlooked.
Vicky is based in Thames Ditton.
