She has studied art in Australia and at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence Italy.


"It is always a challenge as an artist to capture a human's individual features and likeness while revealing the fundamental essence of the sitters' personality, and physical character. My aim is to give a very three dimensional aspect to the work which goes further and reveals something of the inner essence of my subject. I like my portraits to feel present, as if they could almost walk out of the painting.

My goal as I approach each painting is to depict a sincere honesty within each of my subjects and capture this within my painterly portrayal."


Vicki Sullivan born 1962 , Australian
