Before moving to Gardnerville, Vickie lived at South Lake Tahoe for 20 years. She was a vocalist with several local and Sacramento bands. She sang on the M.S. Dixie and at the Top of the Wheel at Harveys. Her Art interests didn’t stop there. She always loved to paint and continued to develop her skills. Now she works predominately in Watercolor, but will jump track and do a painting in Oil also. “Our Valley offers an abundance of beauty” she says. Vickie has been giving classes lately. She says ” It is such a joy to see the enthusiasm of others when they experience the magic of painting”.
