“I can’t wait to return to the warmth of the Forgotten Coast Paint Out this year – lovely people, Florida sunshine and a wealth of inspiring subjects in every location along the beautiful coast.”
Based in Shropshire, England, Vicki Norman received her BA in Fine Art in 2000 and went on to work as an illustrator, she later qualified for a teaching certificate specialising in post-16 education. In recent years, she has studied with master painters and sculptors around the globe, all the time searching for traditional skills and methods which can be applied to paintings of a modern world.
A keen traveller, Vicki is fascinated with the unique combination of light and landscape in each location as she makes paintings that seek to capture the essence of the day and the sense of place through the colour, shape and light. Inspired by both contemporary and past masters, Vicki’s paintings employ an historical skill set with a fresh, personal approach. Her works have won awards in the UK and Ireland and she is a regular contributor to plein air events and competitions on both sides of the Atlantic. Vicki has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in London.
A popular tutor and demonstrator, Vicki is recognised for her clear communication and boundless enthusiasm.
