Vicky McLain’s work reflects her love of the outdoors. She has found that a cotton field, and an abandoned car or barn has as much to say on canvas as a vase of flowers. Now a proud South Carolinian, Vicky really appreciates what South Carolina has given her to capture on canvas.
Vicky has been an avid artist since she first picked up a crayon as a child in Texas. She has been a professional artist most of her life, and since January 2000, art has been her full-time job. Vicky studied drawing at the San Antonio Art Institute and has taken over 15 workshops with various instructors since moving to South Carolina in 2000. She studied design while earning a B.A. in Management at Virginia Wesleyan College.
Vicky has received numerous awards including most recently, Best In Show at the South Carolina State Fair in 2015. Vicky was the Petrified Forest National Park Artist in Residence in June 2017.
