Testimonials

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.

THE ARTIST

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 at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust. Vicki, originally from Dartmoor in Devon, lives on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales with her husband and two children.

How lovely does the countryside look just now? So lush and verdant.

Not so great for hay fever sufferers of course! 🤧 

This is ‘Meadow Hare 2’ - available as a fine art print, greeting card or coaster 🌸

Working away in the background on my year-long landscape course with @newlynartschool 

This exercise, introduced by art tutor @jon_doran , involves making small colour studies in oil. Only the big shapes are put in, avoiding fussy details.
I used the same cool limited palette for all these studies (ultramarine blue, viridian, burnt sienna, and white).

I am really enjoying this course, especially because it involves such varied materials and techniques. I’m learning loads! 🙌

I’m looking forward to delivering a workshop next weekend with a local art group. 

We’re going to be exploring ‘watercolour birds’.

Watercolours can be such fun to work with, although difficult and frustrating at times too!
Their charm is in the ‘expecting the unexpected’ - but some ‘unexpecteds’ are good- some not so much 🙃

Anyway, i’m pleased with how this fella turned out.

The beautiful South West Coast Path 🌊 

Painted with acrylic on linen canvas.

🛍️ Prints and cards available online.

I’m really looking forward to creating more beautiful landscapes as I progress through my landscape course with @newlynartschool 
So far I have mainly sketches and drawings, but I think it will be a significant body of work by the end of the course!

Loose pastel portrait ⚡️ 

Pastels are such a versatile medium- I tend to use @unisoncolour 

They can be a bit messy & dusty, but that never puts me off 😁 

The richness of colour and vibrancy is superb with pastels as they pure pigment 🎨 

Anyone else a pastel fan? 🙌 

This picture is sold.

My latest painting, acrylic on canvas 90cm x 90cm

The foliage and florals ended up a bit stylised which is not my usual approach. However, it’s always fun to try something different .

I don’t have a title yet- any ideas welcome!

Thank you to @francescrickmorephoto for a lovely reference 📸

Let’s see if we can continue the portrait theme through April! Again, like with the March hares, I have no idea if I have enough to share, but we’ll see how far we get!

This was an eye study completed before I was brave enough to attempt a full face! 😊 

Pastel and pastel pencils on card.

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 hello@vickidavidson.com 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.

https://www.facebook.com/townhallbuildings

First Impressions Bespoke Framing, Barnard Castle, North Yorkshire

Artios Gallery, New York

https://www.artiosgallery.com

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 hello@vickidavidson.com 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 hello@vickidavidson.com

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 hello@vickidavidson.com 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.

You can see more about Nidd Imaging and their printing process via; http://www.niddimaging.co.uk/
