A Winter Wonderland 2021

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.

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 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.

How I start working through an idea for a commissioned piece.

After an initial discussion, composition and colour palette are agreed using a series of thumbnail sketches and colour blocks.

I love this stage! 🎨 🖌 💦 

Yep, you may have spotted a cheeky G&T - all part of the process! 🍸

A recent commission I can now share with you. 

70cm x 70cm on a deep-edged linen canvas. 

It was such a joy to work with this rich and colourful palette. Based on my very popular ‘Meadow Hare’ painting, it was important to capture that cheeky expression. I had tremendous fun with the colourful background and foliage.

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.
