Vicky Blackburn

From the West Highlands of Scotland, I had a wonderful free childhood in an environment which has had a lasting impact on me.

Without television or mains electricity, I filled my time either exploring the rugged land around us or drawing it- always fascinated by the formation of our land, its nuances, it's interaction with light and the effects that weather and season had. I revelled in being immersed in and surrounded by nothing other than the natural forms and sounds. And still today, to 'escape' back to the west highlands brings new life into my very soul.

I went to the 'big city' of Dundee to study at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art ( 1984 - 1988). From small time country girl to life in the big city at age 17! What a culture shock that was!
Following college I worked in Art Therapy before spending time bringing up my children -
I have now returned to making my own work, on a full time basis, discovering that , as the saying goes, 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' ! and the renewed passion I find for my work knows no bounds!
The work has developed and grown into atmospheric abstract works depicting sea and landscapes, as well as closer studies of aspects of our landscape.

Primarily inspired by the rugged West Highlands I find myself back there regularly for inspiration, as there is simply no other place which evokes the same response in my work.
