Vicki Jackson is a self-taught artist.
She is a member of PANZ (Pastel Artists of New Zealand) and received
awards for her work.
Vicki grew up in small town New Zealand
with cherished animals and a passion for nature and art. She
studied for a Parks, Recreation & Tourism Management Degree,
with a focus on Ecology. At 18 years of age she was fortunate
to do work experience on the Chatham Islands during holidays
and Kapiti Island the following. Vicki had all kinds of jobs
over the years.
Yet it was her abiding dream to one day
become a nature artist. And so in 2005, with a burning desire
to achieve her goal, paired with her love for animals, Vicki
began to paint in pastel - her first commissioned pet portraits.
