Vicky Tucker has been self employed as an artist since 2007.  Having trained as a textile artist initially at Nottingham Trent University, Vicky returned to her passion for drawing and painting, producing pictures for family and friends over the years before taking the plunge and starting her own business.  Specializing in animal portraits, Vicky works mainly in acrylics and pencil, she has worked with many customers, and animals, on a private commission basis since 2007.  Juggling a teaching job and two young children, as well as her self employed business certainly keeps Vicky busy, but undeterred she is currently working on a collection of landscape pieces on the North Yorkshire Moors and the Lake District, two of her favourite places to spend time with her family.
