Vicky Oldfield

Vicky is a printmaker 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. Her prints are taken from plates which have been 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!

Her work has been exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Royal Society of British Artists exhibition, Artists Exchange in Tokyo, and can be seen in many galleries across the UK.

Why I like flowers as a subject

'I am incredibly lucky to be able to indulge my love of flowers in my work. I trained as a designer and worked in the wallpaper industry for many years, and that led to a fascination with plants. I mainly draw British native plants that I see on my walks. I like to discover beauty in simplicity, to slow down and reconnect with the natural world and bring the outside in with my pictures.'

See Vicky's work in Florabundance at Watts Contemporary Gallery, on display until 7 October.
