Welcome to the website of artist Vikki Jones

Moving in a new direction


After many years of organising and running art courses Vikki now intends to have a break from teaching to concentrate on her own development. "As much as I have enjoyed teaching it has not allowed me to pursue my own creativity to the full. With renewed energy and inspiration I want to follow up some of my own ideas and see where this leads me". 


Vikki trained at Leeds College of Art in the mid 1960s. After this she went to work at the 'British School' in Rome, drawing finds for archaeologists which were later used for publication. 


When she returned to England she began teaching art in Leeds and then in Manchester.   During this period she had several exhibitions in Manchester and the surrounding area. Her work has been sold to private collectors in this country, France and Italy .


Vikki now lives in the beautiful market town of Pickering which was the base for her residential art courses for students who travelled from all around the UK. 


North Yorkshire has much to offer to an enthusiastic artist and it provides Vikki with great scope for exploration. Everything from colourful woodland and forests, to vast expanses of moorland and dramatic coastal areas. "I hope to push my own boundaries and follow my instincts ... who knows where this will take me?"
