Vicky Palmer is an award winning artist with the SWA and has become known for her contemporary photographic style of animal portraiture. She is based in Wiltshire, where she is inspired by the surrounding countryside and it’s inhabitants. Vicky’s style of plain unfussy backgrounds allow the viewer to place there own take on the animals she paints, removing them from their traditional environments, as often depicted. This compliments her highly detailed focus of all manner of animals, including the beautiful fox hound packs which are based in the surrounding counties. As with portraits of people, she tries to capture the unique character of each animal in her work.
