Over the years, Vicky has been commissioned to paint various images for clients. She works from life and has recently added acrylics to her repertoire of media.
In 2006, 2010 and 2014 Vicky was commissioned by Glyndebourne Opera to paint flowers from their gardens. The paintings were exhibited during the Summer Festival and inspired card wallets which were sold in the opera house’s gift shop. Two of the images were also featured on the annual Glyndebourne mugs for 2011.
Vicky’s work has also been used for menu covers and to decorate Leith’s at Glyndebourne.
“Beautifully framed, my daughter in law’s wedding bouquet now graces their dining room. Thank you Vicky for this permanent reminder of a beautiful day.”
Mrs. H., Lewes
