Vicki Sullivan is an Australian Realist painter who focuses on portraiture.
She is a member of Portrait Artists Australia and the Melbourne Society of Women Sculptors and Painters founded in 1902, has participated in National and International exhibitions with her portraits, and has been a finalist in several Art Renewal Center International Salon Competitions.
She has studied art in Australia and at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence Italy.
Vicki believes art is a wonderful universal vehicle for communication which can capture a moment in time of human life and evoke an awareness of something deeper, something beyond the surface of our everyday existence.
"It is always a challenge as an artist to capture a human's individual features and likeness while revealing the fundamental essence of the sitters' personality, soul, and physical character. My aim is to give a very three-dimensional aspect to the work which goes further and reveals something of the inner essence of my subject. I like my portraits to feel present as if they could almost walk out of the painting.
My goal as I approach each painting is to depict a sincere honesty within each of my subjects and capture this within my painterly portrayal."
