Sandra Vick - our story
from my studio to your home, beautiful designs on stylish products
from paintings to prints to mugs, jugs and textiles
It is amazing to realise that in 2 1/2 years Sandra Vick has gone from selling a few mugs from her studio, to being an incorporated business selling over 30 lovely things decorated with her designs to retailers across Scotland.
In 2015 Sandra first started selling her designs on mugs and fabric when her friends, who were unable to afford original fine art, were asking to buy homeware items depicting her paintings. She loved the idea that art could be put onto everyday items and starting with just 50 mugs initially, the range and designs have grown.
Every one of Sandra Vick Ltd designs is drawn from original paintings of birds seen in our gardens, woodlands and on the coast. Each original painting is the result of observation and drawing of the birds in their habitat. Each bird is meticulously rendered to accurately represent birds so that they can be idenitfied from just the memory of movements and their silhouette.
In addition to the gifts and homewares, Sandra's paintings are published by Edinburgh Arts as open edition giclee prints and greeting cards. These are sold through galleries across the UK and a small selection of prints can be bought handsigned direct from Sandra's online shop. Sandra continues to sell her original artwork through art galleries outlets across Scotland.
Sandra's studio is based just outside Edinburgh - perfectly placed for enjoying the countryside and the contemporary nature of city life. Sandra Vick combines these two influences to bring stylish and contemporary design to homewares that would look good in any home.
