TITLE: Getting Ready to Leave

MEDIUM: Original Textile

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Vicki took to producing textile art late in life, but there was always a creative side to her that wanted to come out. Vicki’s highly detailed work, mainly of wildlife, is constructed using only fabric and thread and is referred to as free-motion embroidery or thread painting. This is quite an unusual artistic medium and no paint, pens or pencils are used in the portrayal of Vicki’s subjects. Such is the intricacy of the fine detail that, on first glance, many assume her work to be more a conventionally painted piece.

#SKETCHFORWILDLIFE: Each year, the talented artists who take part in DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year are invited to participate in #SketchForWildlife. These small postcard sized original artworks give everyone a chance to own a totally unique piece of work, by a highly sought-after collection of artists.

The postcards have always been extremely popular and we hope you will support this initiative. The subject and medium of the postcard has been left entirely up to the artist, just being their own celebration of the natural world.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION: Shipping costs are included in the price of this artwork.
