Vicki Ratcliff

Vicki is a watercolour and oil painter living on Sydney’s northern beaches. She believes that a dip in the sea puts life in perspective, humbles us with its vastness and beauty, and connects us with each other. She is inspired to paint the women who share her morning dip, their warmth and strength, their love of life, camaraderie and age-defying beauty.
Vicki is an exhibiting and award-winning member of the Australian Society of Miniature Art. Working in miniature has become a more recent passion and she believes that a miniature can convey all the beauty and power of a larger work of art but have the added appeal of being a particularly personal and intimate object. Plus, she says, she just loves working on such an intricate scale.
