Vicki White grew up in Taree NSW & after school left to study Graphic Design at Randwick Technical College. After pursuing a career in Advertising & Corporate Design, she returned to study Fine Art & is a graduate from The College of Fine Art UNSW (now UNSW Art & Design), completing a Bachelor of Fine Art & Master of Art in Painting & Drawing in the 1990’s.
She has been involved in Artist Run Initiatives, participates in group shows & self initiated projects, has been a finalist in numerous art awards including the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize, Portia Geach Memorial Award, The Blake Prize, The Tattersalls Landscape Prize, Fishers Ghost & Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, & has won a number of awards & commendations.

Her evolving practice includes painting, video & photography, & considers the notion of landscape as a ‘living source of wisdom, beauty & transformative power”. She’s interested in how pictures can convey feelings & embody memories, through our shared experiences of joy, elation, longing, loss & melancholy.
