If you had to describe Vicki Atkinson’s work at a glance, whimsical and quirky spring to mind but, look again and a resonance of serenity, poise and expression exude from the sculptures.
Her work has a simple honesty which she attributes to everyday observations and an interest in early mythology.
She has been influenced by the work of many great sculptors, such as Rodin, Moore and Giacometti. Painters, too, have inspired her, such as Modigliani, Picasso and Beryl Cook!

After completing a foundation course at Eastbourne, Victoria Atkinson studied sculpture at City and Guilds of London Art School, where she received a classical training with an emphasis on life drawing and modelling.
“Victoria’s figures ooze attitude and make you laugh out loud. She and her work just gel, both having a sense of frivolity and honesty.”
