Vicki Vinton

Using her knowledge of art history and the applied arts, in addition to her experience as master faux painter, Vicki Vinton creates mixed media works that “manifest energetic surfaces, a skillful use of color, and an earthy curiosity.” Vinton’s process involves foraging for organic materials and strategizing their placement in her works at her studio. When finished, her textured compositions reflect the artist’s ever-changing mood and impressions of the natural world around her—according to Vinton, making art “is the tactile way of communicating that liberates a relentless curiosity, and a restless mind.”
