Vicky Oldfield likes to find beauty in the everyday - some weeds on a roadside, or a cluttered windowsill can set off a new collection.  She treasures both the eccentric and the ordinary, inspired by collections of found objects and natural forms; she is fascinated with the structure and design found in flowers and plants, often redrawing the same plant many times over to explore the subtle variations in its form.    

Paintings often tell a story using collage and drawing, referencing a memory, time, or place.  

She starts with drawing often directly on to the plate, which is then drawn into and collaged with a variety of materials, card, fabric, paper, string, sand, and anything else that may come to hand; it’s recycling at its most creative!  The plates are then sealed, inked up and printed in intaglio or relief on damp paper using an etching press.  The embossed textural quality of the print is unique to this method. They are often printed in one colour and then hand painted. 

Thanks to the process itself, Vicky can make small editions of the image; each edition will vary within its run due to the process itself and her desire to experiment. Each print produced is then unique.
