Vick Sawyer's fun loving personality and enthusiasm for life are evident in her paintings. Her influences vary - from past work in graphics, doll making and years of painting murals, to an appreciation to all things in nature. As a child she learned to identify plants on nature walks with her grandfather, and soaked up her father's love of birds. On a walk one day, it occurred to Vicki that if birds could build nests, then they could make hats. This notion has led to an expanding series of whimsical bird and animal paintings. Vicki has moved beyond the canvas as well, licensing her well loved images for a variety of products such as paper goods, needlepoint designs and more. Click here to read our Q&A with Vicki.
"I want my work to evoke feelings of peace, joy and often humor. If I can move someone with my art, then I have achieved my ultimate aim: to serve. ~ Vicki Sawyer, Franklin TN
