Vicki Busby is a Florida native and award-winning fine artist and graphic designer. After studying with several local, published, and internationally known artists, Vicki has developed her own unique impressionistic abstract painting style. She enjoys applying dramatic light and bold colors to her landscapes along with subtle reflected light and mysterious darks that make her night scenes dramatic and exciting. Recently she has been focusing on photographing then painting local wetlands, giving an abstract edge to them. I like to change the colors around in my finished work. I’ll create three or four small pastel paintings using different color combinations from the same landscape photo.
