Vicki Chelf is a fine arts graduate of the Ringling School of Art and Design and has studied classical academic techniques at the Southern Atelier for over three years. With series of painting in different media, Vicki's art first manifested as stream of consciousness drawings that were painted in various sizes and techniques. Later she channeled her passion for figurative painting and portraiture into works that draw upon her interests in current events, food and the environment, while still embracing her metaphysical interests in dreams and stream of consciousness imagery. Evoking a relationship between the old masters and contemporary symbolism, Vicki's recent paintings combine both skill and personal expression.
A dual career as a cookbook author has given Vicki a deep respect for the gift of healthful food. These acrylic paintings juxtapose religious iconography from various world religions with food. Occasionally other objects are included for color or composition, or simply to add interest.
