The nature of my work varies from medium to medium, yet it always comes from the breath of my soul, my intuition, my quiet place, my heart.
My joy and my hope is to spread love into the universe by incorporating love into everything that I create. For me, Art is Prayer.
Vikki Weigel, a Georgia native, a seasoned visual artist, designer, and instructor, is passionate about sharing the mindful experience of both art making and art appreciation. Vikki is drawn to concepts of the simple beauty reflected in everyday life. A stack of folded shirts, a portrait posed goat, women of differing ethnicities united as one, Vikki paints “art that breathes.” Messages of love, justice, simplicity, and joy resonate throughout her decorative, yet soulful, expressions. Lately, Vikki is exploring a more abstract journey, allowing the intuitive to bring about its own visual atmosphere and language.
Vikki’s lifelong interest in creative design was further cultivated when she opted to take her Bachelor’s degree in Advertising. This awoke her desire to move into the commercial decorative art field. Vikki creates original art design work for interior designers, art and décor catalogs, and stores like Haverty’s, and Home Goods; her art has been licensed through Paragon, a national art distributor, and is sold and collected throughout the US and abroad. Vikki shows annually in art shows and festivals and has received several awards, such as best in show, people’s choice, and best in state.
Professional leadership roles in three museums broadened Vikki’s knowledge and admiration for folk art, fine art, fine craft, and art education. After studying under several master artisans, even working with Georgia’s own Gerry Bosch, who studied under Picasso, Vikki found her love for teaching art processes to adults and children in museums, art centers, schools, camps, and
at her own Vikki Paints / Kunst Haus Studio. Additionally, Vikki is a visual merchandiser and certified professional organizer, and mindfulness coach.
Vikki lives in Senoia, GA with her husband Martin, daughter Versailles, and Mopsy, their beloved dog.
