Vicki Bartholomew is a Nashville impressionist artist.
Her love of art goes back to childhood with a natural ability to draw and create. Her most recent works have taken her to a free, loose style in oils that vibrate with color and movement. She also works in watercolor.
Her subjects include scenes of her beloved Tennessee woods and farmlands, studio still life, and observations of life including musicians in Nashville. Vicki loves to do series and continues to enlarge on collections of the same subject such as blue and white porcelain. She has done commissioned work of specific places for special spaces.
