Note 2: Vicki was born in East Boldre in the New Forest in 1970. She gained a diploma in Fine Art from Byam Shaw School of Art in 1992, and then studied for a BA Hons at Solent University, Southampton. Her lifelong love of nature is at the heart of her paintings: landscapes, seascapes and imaginative compositions featuring wild and domestic animals, often accompanied by a female figure who is an alter ego. Colour is a very important aspect to the work, heightened and expressive in nature. Vicki is influenced by naïve and surrealist art, with Frida Kahlo, Henri Rousseau, Stanley Spencer and the Swiss artist Balthus among many important figures in the development of her style, described as 'naïve yet sophisticated' by her tutors. Her paintings have a similar style as that of the early Bloomsbury School, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant in particular.


A condition report is offered as an indication of any issues visible to the naked eye. As none of our staff is a professional conservator or restorer, buyers must satisfy themselves in respect of condition and McTear’s can provide contact details of local professionals who can provide fully comprehensive expert reports, usually for a modest charge. The condition report does not form part of any contract between McTear's and the buyer, and all lots are offered "as is" in accordance with our Terms of Business available on our website.
