Trained in classical mosaic in the late 90's in London, and Venice a few years later, Vicki began her professional art career making fine art mosaics and serving as a Partner at Ciel Gallery in Charlotte. Exhibited in juried shows including Mosaic Arts International; recognized and awarded, her mosaics include public art, private commission and fine art.
Inspired by story and symbolism, Vicki's mosaic work - representational in style, draws inspiration from the Byzantine and Op-Art eras. Tessellating patterns can be found in many of her works.
Vicki is Principal of M3 Gallery which began as a brick + mortar gallery exhibiting fine art mosaics made by leading artists from across the world and a fine arts classroom.
Late 2017 M3 transitioned to a focus dedicated to empowering artists to sell more work by defining their ideal customer, creating online visibility and leaning into their unique micro niche specializations and multiple revenue streams.
Earlier in her career, Vicki worked as a Department Manager in a large department store and learned the joys of serving customers well while managing the business. As a young mother she freelanced while the kids were in school serving numerous organizations by optimizing and automating their enrollment and customer service systems making happy customers and volunteer workers.
Helping Artists and Creative Entrepreneurs find their niche, sell more work and create boutique customer experiences is in her DNA.
