As a child Vicki learned to identify plants on nature walks with her grandfather, soaked up her father's love of birds and her mother's joy of painting. These influences, her fun loving personality and enthusiasm for life are evident in her art. Her career was established with a degree from Penn State University, which led to work in graphic design, handmade doll creation, and professional mural painting. During her mural painting years, Vicki developed a portfolio of hundreds of works featuring birds, insects, animals, grasses, and wildflowers. Her experience confidently led her to begin her ever expanding series of whimsical bird and animal paintings on canvas. 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.
"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, Carnegie PA
