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.

#varnish #windsorandnewton #retouchvarnish #hare #oilpainting #vickidavidsonart
After a summer break- and busy with a few non-art projects at home 🏡- I’ve been limbering up again with some small ink and watercolour sketches.

Such fun! 😃 💕 

I used some lovely reference photos from @francescrickmorephoto 📸 🙏

Interested in this original oil painting?

It has just been bespoke framed and is available via @animalartgallery in Malton, North Yorkshire

I love puffins and they are certainly fun to paint. I used chunky ‘impasto’ paint in parts of this piece, especially on the rocks.

I’ve been sorting through some admin and follow-up after a busy summer of shows.

I was interested to note that ‘Blossom Hare’ was the top selling print during @greatyorkshireshow @yorksdalesfest and @artinthepen 💕 

I had plenty of stock in all sizes and some framed too. 

Interestingly, this was also the most popular greeting card design too.

I think people warm to the simple composition, the fresh colours and the tiny cute hare. I do know there are several girls bedrooms now that have ‘Blossom Hare’ on the walls, and quite a few nurseries 🥰 

Available in three print sizes, all individually signed and professionally mounted.

Also an A5 greeting card which is blank for a personal message.

This original artwork ‘Sketchy Coo 2’ recently sold from @animalartgallery 

Sadly, I didn’t get a photo of him in his smart new frame- but he looked pretty cool! 

@animalartgallery in Malton, North Yorkshire, is a fabulous and welcoming gallery with plenty of beautiful works to browse, from a wide variety of artists. They also offer a bespoke framing service. 

Malton is also a wonderful place to visit- and known as the food capital of Yorkshire. There are lots of artisan producers to choose from for your breakfast, morning coffee, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, supper, or anything in between 😆 😋 

Prints of ‘Sketchy Coo 2’ are available via my website, in three different sizes. 
Also available as a greeting card or coaster ☕️

So, I’ve enjoyed a lovely relaxing family holiday after the busyness of the summer shows.

I’ve not had much time to sketch or draw due to a hectic schedule of swimming, eating, drinking, reading and about 4 hours a day of snorkelling! 😂 

I’ve certainly got plenty of inspiration for some new pieces and new subjects! 🐠 

I will now need to get busy in preparation for the autumn and winter shows which are just around the corner.

I will start with unpacking and sorting through everything following @artinthepen as I went on holiday the day after. This will include a stocktake and reorder where necessary. I know I need to reorder coasters as they were so popular throughout all the summer shows.

I will also draw the winner for the art print giveaway , so if you entered this then best of luck- winner will be notified tomorrow 🤞🏼 

Next up will be @contemporaryartfairs at Harrogate- more details to follow soon. 

A break is wonderful but I now can’t wait to get back in the studio 🎨 😃

We will now put our feet up and relax, ready to do it all again tomorrow 😃 
We look forward to welcoming tomorrow’s visitors 🎨

What a busy time it’s been here at Vicki Davidson Art!! 

I’ve been out and about meeting so many lovely people and chatting all things art. I feel totally overwhelmed by such a positive response to my work during both @greatyorkshireshow and @yorksdalesfest 

I was so busy getting everything ready that I didn’t get chance to take a photo of ‘Blue Hare’ in his smart new frame. Luckily his new owner sent me a photo so you can also see how cool he looked. Thank you so much @wensleydalegalleries 🙏 for sorting all my framing needs and meeting some tight deadlines! 

Next show is @artinthepen which will be my second time at this brilliant event. Tickets are selling fast so do book quick if you are planning on attending. See you there! 👋 🎨

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.
