I am an artist, children's art instructor, and above all a wife and mom. I love art, kids', nature, interior design, Italy, coffee, and chocolate.
I'm fairly new to photography (August 2009) and I'm driving my family nuts with the constant clicking of my camera wherever we go. Photography is giving me a whole new enthusiasm for life and an even greater appreciation for the simple things. I just opened an Etsy Shop that I'm pretty excited about, too. We'll see how it goes. ;) www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7465613 I also have a blog, Simply Hue, matissecolor.blogspot.com/.
Btw, feel free to use my photos on your blog as long as you put a link back to my flickr. photostream. :)
Thanks for all of your kind and encouraging comments. Flickr is such a supportive community and I"m so glad to be a part of it!

"I love Vicki's work - no kidding! She's one of my all time idols on Flickr for sure. Her work is extremely creative and full of bright, cheerful colors. I could spend a day marvelling at her beautiful stream. Not only is she a talented artist but she's also an extremely inspirational mentor for fellow photographers. Thank you for sharing your work and ideas with us! Hugs!"

"Words are so inadequate to articulate the amount of talent Vicki's work has in store. Strolling across her stream you'll completely be in 'awe' and inspired by the uplifting array of beautiful designs and colors she puts into her stunning images. They are invigorating and full of life! They exemplifies the way we see the world through her eyes... It's 'mind boggling' and truly 'priceless' ! It's a rainbow of so many talents!
Vicki, you are an 'inspiration' and a 'blessing' to the art we hold dear.
May you continue to share with us the 'talents' that few people are born with. May you always be bless and be very successful in the countless endeavors that you have so devoted with and put so much love in your heart. May you be guided comfortably in all your dreams... God Speed, My Dear Friend!"

"Vicki's entire photo stream is full of vintage flare & whimsy, and that's what I love most about her work!! Pastels, soft & dreamy images, and amazing vintage antiques make it so very unique and different. Not only does she find fabulous antiques, but she is an honest-to-goodness great gal, extremely thoughtful and kind! I feel so blessed to have her as a friend & look forward to seeing what inspiring shot she will post next!! XOXO ~ Kristen"
