BIO/CV

Vicki Ferras was born in Brantford, Ontario and studied art at the University of Waterloo, University of Toronto, and most recently at the United World Colleges in Montezuma, New Mexico, and at The Toronto School of Art, Toronto. From the late 70's through the early 90's her work was presented in galleries and businesses throughout Southern Ontario and she completed both private and corporate commissions.

Although Vicki's interest and involvement in art has been life long, exhibiting was deferred while raising her daughters and operating a community art instruction studio for children and adults. While following this with a return to teaching visual arts at the secondary school level, she attended university to complete a Masters Degree in Education and defended her thesis entitled The Nature of the Highly Artistic Student in Visual Arts at Secondary School.

Vicki's artistic approach began with large, bold, contrasting coloured, hard edged acrylic abstracts, and gradually evolved into traditionally themed acrylic and watercolour landscape compositions. Vicki has expanded her repertoire in acrylic with the introduction of mixed media and integration of acrylic ink into her pieces. Her non-representational paintings and charcoal drawings are based on the reflections of experience and the interpretations of imaginative and conceptual thought.
