Patricia June Vickers
My interest in art came through a culture that is rich with symbolism, metaphors, grace and beauty. With roots in the United Kingdom on my mother’s side and Tsm’syen of the Northwest coast on my father’s side, inspiration was found in everyday life through my paternal grandparents and my older siblings and their cultural and artistic passions.
I chose to study under different artists that inspired me, learning techniques and methods for watercolour, acrylic, oil, encaustic and cold wax. I work toward interpretation of lived experience through texture, hue, composition expressing the spiritual and supernatural. My goal with each painting is to create a piece that has healing medicine and portrays aspects of the actual interwoven with grace and mystery.
Patricia June Vickers’ paintings invite the viewer on a journey of inquiry into the cause-effect, action-reaction of events in history.
