Living North Christmas Fair

10th - 13th November 2022 I am looking forward to returning to York Racecourse this season for the Living North Christmas Fair. Living North's Christmas Fair promises a fabulous day out with shopping, food and live music. This is one of the biggest and best seasonal shopping events in the North with over 250 carefully selected artisan designer-makers, local food producers, homeware, beauty,...



You are so talented, the detail is beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your work.

Vicki, I absolutely feel like crying. It’s amazing, so perfectly connected to the Hope wall. I can’t stop looking at it! Really beautiful. It makes me believe we can get rainbow paint!

Our little hare friend arrived safely and appears quite happy with his new home! And we, his new caretakers, couldn’t be more thrilled with him and delighted with your brilliant work!! He’s even more gorgeous than in the pictures. I am over the moon.

My father-in-law isn’t often moved to shed a few tears but your portrait certainly did just that. As birthday presents go I think you nailed it for him!

Just awesome Vicki. The movement you create and use of colour are stunning.

A short review because that’s all that is required.

You only have to look through Vicki’s body of work to see the consistency of her talent. Each piece is easily identifiable as hers. There’s little wonder her work is in such demand, and having two of her pieces I certainly have turned into a collector.

About Vicki

Vicki Davidson is an artist with a passion for bright, dynamic and inspirational art. Always keen to experiment, Vicki works in oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolour, charcoal…and anything she can get her hands on to make a mark really! Subjects include sketches, portraits, animals (especially hares!) and, more recently, landscapes.

Although Vicki studied art and design at ‘A’ Level, a busy career in nursing has left little time for her passion. Vicki’s nursing career has taken her around the world, including London, Australia, an African expedition and even some time in a Field Hospital during her time as a reservist with the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps. Now her two children are growing up, and needing her less, Vicki has decided to pursue her passion for art.

In 2017 Vicki started sharing her work on social media and in a few select local galleries. The artwork has rapidly generated a keen interest, resulting in commissions and requests for prints of the work. Vicki still works as a nurse for the NHS, currently a Clinical Matron at The Friarage Hospital in Northallerton, North Yorkshire. Vicki, originally from Dartmoor in Devon, lives on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales with her husband and two children.

I have now put the finishing touches to this large (90cm x 90cm) canvas. 

I plan to get the image digitised in the next few weeks, with prints to follow…..

I love the vibrancy, abstraction and movement of this piece. I wonder who would be bold enough to hang this large painting on their wall 😳 🚴 

Any thoughts on a title? 🤔

Not a great deal of new work to show you just at the moment…. but here’s a sneak peek of a little something I’m working on (actually- it’s not so little 😂)

Working with big brushes, palette knife and lots of paint. So much fun 😃 

Can you guess the subject? 🤔

Enjoying some loose brushwork 😃 

Using a reference photo, with a great deal of artistic licence 😆 

It’s so freeing to paint in this way, with a sense of play and no firm plan.

‘Snowfall Hare’

One of my earlier pieces of work, but remains incredibly popular! 

I took a walk around Swaledale yesterday - cold but bright and fresh- and saw several hares dashing about. They were smaller than the hares I see around my home in Bedale, but just as cute!

So many people have a Robin story!

Often, they feel someone they have loved and lost is close by. I love hearing these stories, and agree that Robins are very special indeed.

We have several little Robins that visit our garden, and they can be quite playful if we are out gardening. It’s like they want to join in!

This piece was painted for my Mum after a little Robin bobbed into the summerhouse we were sitting in at @rhsharlowcarr 
It was a lovely summer’s day and it was just us, relaxing, and our little Robin! I painted this for Mum at Christmas to remember that lovely moment. 

Do you have a Robin story? ♥️

All set up for the Christmas Fair at @solbergehall 🎄 

It’s cosy-by-the-fire season! 🔥 

How fabulous does this canvas print of ‘Yorkshire Hare’ look in this interior?

A printed canvas is a great option for wall art and can be displayed with or without a frame.
Please DM for details ✉️ 

Yorkshire Hare is one of my favourite pieces, created with acrylic paint and thin washes (glazing) to create depth and a richness of colour.

With his thick coat of fur, I think he will be warm this winter, especially by the fire ☺️

I do love to receive pictures from customers!

This is one of my ink drawings from the ‘Original Drawings, Sketches and Small Paintings’ section of my online shop. 

I think this piece looks fantastic in his new frame chosen by the customer. I am told he has pride of place in their hallway!

I would love to know- where have you hung your Vicki Davidson artwork?!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take commissions

Unfortunately I am unable to take new commissions just at the moment, this is because my waiting list is full.

Don’t worry though, commissions will be available again, so please keep an eye on the website and my social media accounts for updates in regard to this.

Do you ship overseas?

Yes! Shipping costs are applied in the shop. If you are outside the UK and your order includes a framed original, then please get in touch via to arrange shipping of this item. 

Is your work available in galleries?

Yes. I have work in the following local galleries if you would like to visit and view paintings in person.

Coastal Fine Art and Framing, Town Hall Buildings, Northallerton, North Yorkshire.

The Animal Art Gallery, Malton, North Yorkshire

First Impressions Bespoke Framing, Barnard Castle, North Yorkshire

I am also a represented artist with the following international gallery where work can be viewed online;

Artios Gallery, New York

Do you supply prints in frames?

Prints are supplied with a hard backing board and laser-cut mount in a neutral colour (usually cream or white). It is then acetate wrapped for protection.

I can arrange bespoke framing if required. This can take up to four weeks, will be priced individually depending on choice and will incur a higher shipping cost.

Again, for original works, if not already in a frame, then I can assist with this.

Please contact me via to discuss your framing requirements

What if I don't like my picture?

I hope you will be delighted with your new artwork. However, in the unlikely event you are not entirely satisfied then please contact me via

I am happy to provide a full refund provided the artwork is returned in perfect condition. Return shipping costs to be paid by the customer.

Can I order prints in different sizes?

Yes! Please contact Vicki via to discuss bespoke print sizes.

What is Giclée printing?

Giclée is a French word (pronounced Zhee-Clay) which literally means “fine spray”. Giclée fine art prints are produced digitally on high quality inkjet printers, which have the capability to reproduce a much wider range of colours than conventional processes, due to the specially formulated inks and media used. The Giclée process is really the only current solution available to artists who wish to obtain a close match to their original work and have the peace of mind that the prints will remain vibrant and fade resistant for decades to come.

All of the printing at Vicki Davidson is carried out by Nidd Imaging. Their quality of prints is exceptional!

Each print is approved by Vicki to ensure the colour match is as exact as possible to the original.
