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.

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 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 working within cardiothoracic services and critical care. Vicki, originally from Dartmoor in Devon, lives on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales with her husband and two children.

It’s such a thrill when customers share with me how they have framed their artwork and where they have chosen to hang it.

Can you spot the bright splash of colour from ‘Poppy Hare’ here on this stunning monochromatic ‘memory wall’.
Seemingly each piece on this gorgeous and stylish wall has a significant meaning, or represents a special memory for this collector.
I’m very honoured indeed to be featured! 🌹 

At the beginning, I was a little unsure about sharing my art, it took a big leap of faith to do so! I am so glad that I did as receiving customer feedback and seeing my artwork being treasured and enjoyed makes all my efforts absolutely worth it. It’s kind of cool that I enjoy making the artwork so much too! 

 Happy for you to share your own pictures below xxx

The oh-so-popular ‘Regal Hare’ 👑 

This majestic chap was created using soft pastels, which I love working with. Pastels are very tactile to use and I love to blend the colours and layers with my fingertips.

For some reason I haven’t used pastels for a while. I think I may need to brush the dust off my gorgeous @unisoncolour pastels and start creating with them again!
What do you think? 🤔

World Bicycle Day!! 🚲 🚴🏻‍♀️ 🚴🏽‍♂️ 

This original pastel artwork was created with soft pastels on card.

The image is available as signed prints and greeting cards.

Pastels are great fun to work with and can be built up in many layers. It’s also possible to get quite creative with smudging effects!
Here the loose strokes and smudges are used to give the impression of speed 💨

‘Blossom Avenue’

Prints and greeting cards available soon....

The original oil painting (90cm x90cm deep-edge canvas) will now receive a coat of varnish. 

I use a special varnish that enables the painting to properly dry underneath. Did you know that an oil painting can take many months to dry, sometimes up to a year!
Acrylic is a much quicker drying paint, which brings some advantages and provides a few challenges too! I love painting in acrylic and oil in equal measure.

It’s fair to say I am also rather fond of pink! 😆 💞 🌸 🌺

Thank you for hare ref 📸 @suecrosswildlife

I have three different cards and prints to choose from for cycling enthusiasts!

Also, just to let you know, I am taking a little holiday next week. Therefore there will be a delay on order dispatches. All orders will be processed on my return 😃 

It looks like I’ve timed my holidays well weather-wise?! 😎

This is one of my most commented on and shared portraits. It is also one of my personal favourites, and was exceptionally fun to paint 🎨 

Complimented by a stunning and unique frame by @wensleydalegalleries the original is sold but prints and greeting cards will be available soon.

The original is only small at 20x25cm, but with the direct gaze of the subject, bold brushwork and vibrant colour it really packs a punch. 

Painted with oils on aluminium panel.

If you are a painter and haven’t tried aluminium as a surface then I highly recommend giving it a go. It responds very differently to canvas or board but the end results almost glow! 😀

All my original paintings now come with a certificate of authenticity.
📝
I’ve also bought a lovely new ink stamp for my address on the back of parcels. I think I’m possibly a stationary addict (as well as an art materials addict 😆)

I get a great deal of satisfaction in wrapping and packaging my orders and paintings. It’s something I’ve had to learn and improve on as I go.
📦 
You might be surprised to know  there is an awful lot of ‘admin’ behind the scenes running an art business. However, I am enjoying every aspect of it and learning so many new skills too ✅

I have recently had a large print framed in a beautiful charcoal-grey frame and I think it looked rather smashing!

This original oil painting is now available to purchase online.

His colours are exceptionally vivid, and it’s one of my favourites! 
He measures 30cm x 42cm and is painted on fine stretched linen.

He is rather imaginatively titled ‘Green Hare’. 💚😆

Prints and cards will also be available soon....

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

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/
