Vicki Asp’s sense of awe for the beauty of the world, a well-developed work ethic, and twenty years of daily honing her craft have brought a level of mastery to her vivid and luminous landscapes. Vicki was always an artist, but only began to focus on her art in her early twenties. She studied portraiture and figure rendering, oil and watercolor painting, and color theory at various academic institutions throughout the country. As a personal challenge, Vicki entered her work in art shows from Virginia to California, generating more than seventy-five awards in local, regional, and international competitions. Vicki specializes in plein air painting, creating small studies on location, and then recreating and enlarging them at home in her studio.
