Artist Statement






Meet the Artist -


Vicki S. Vaden



My interest in art began as a child while spending countless hours

watching my father, Doyle Vaden, sketch detailed architectural

drawings of the vanishing historic landmarks of the southeastern

United States.





Dad taught me to look for the art that surrounds us. He wanted my

brothers and I to notice and appreciate the tiniest details that make

up the whole. That appreciation grew into a desire to share what I

saw as beauty. To do that I had to develop the skills to relay what

I saw with some degree of accuracy. Recently, I've become more

comfortable in stretching the "accuracy" concept.





During the 1970's and 1980's Dad was known as the "South's

Leading Graphic Historian " and I was also beginning to show

my work in juried art shows. Our family traveled full-time on the

professional art show circuit selling limited edition prints and

original art.





I became interested in commercial graphic arts in the 1980's and

learned the associated technical skills with a ten-year stretch in

the printing industry. During this time my work focused on client

needs instead of art for art's sake.





In 1992, I left the printing field to follow growing interests in buying

and reselling antiques. In 1994 I opened my own shop, Grandma's

Attic Antiques in Crossville, TN, which I still operate today.





Art is a strong element in my life. I continue to pursue original works

in watercolor, pen & ink and photography, as well as, carvings and

digital images. I'm also available for commissions and commercial

graphics on a contract basis.





All those years I spent in the printing business have been very

valuable to me in demanding the highest quality possible for prints.

The prints in this gallery are available in several sizes. I've chosen

imagekind because of their commitment to excellence in the repro-

duction of my work. Rest assured that I have checked the other

services and imagekind will print and safely ship excellent quality

prints at great prices - and most importantly, they stand behind

their work 100%. In other words, if there is ever a problem, you can

talk to a real person at imagekind who will make sure that the order

is done right.





Feel free to email me with any questions at vsvaden@gmail.com





Thanks for checking out my sales gallery!




Sincerely,



Vicki S. Vaden
