about vicki mcinnes
Vicki is an experienced professional artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Her works strongly echo the tonal realist discipline she studied intensively at Montsalvat in Eltham, showing carefully observed colour and form, with a contemporary approach to composition.
Among other achievements, Vicki is a signatory member of the Victorian Artists' Society, and was the Australian Guild of Realist Artists' annual Art Excellence Award winner, for 2011/2012. Her natural talent and eye for tone and colour can be traced back to her seven-times Archibald Prize-winning grandfather, W B McInnes, and her grandmother, Violet McInnes, who was also a highly regarded artist.
Vicki is available for group and individual tuition (in oils, acrylics and drawing), painting demonstrations and workshops.
"My role as teacher is to help my students build the skills and confidence to develop their ideas.
My classes are conversational and informal, and everyone works at their own pace. I teach a mix of experienced students and beginners.
I strongly believe that painting must be enjoyable, whether you want to exhibit your work, or simply paint for the pleasure of it."
