And Fancy Free…
Unframed signed/numbered print (image size 16″ x 20″)
Warm, effervescent and a study in perpetual motion, Vivi was equally comfortable at home, at the easel, in the mountains or at a gala opening. Her 20 years in the West, coupled with her extensive European art training, is a blend that allowed Vivi to produce today’s most noteworthy Wildlife Art.
Vivi accomplished what all artists strive for; a recognizable style all their own…. The detail she achieved was amazing with soft focus and the frequent use of motion that added to the lifelike appearance of her paintings. Vivi’s crowning glory, however, was the inner luminescence of the eyes – best described as “Alive”.
It obviously worked. Collectors waited, sometimes years, for an original, and her limited edition prints are still carried in over 300 galleries. Perhaps more importantly, Vivi’s art has raised over a million dollars for Wildlife causes with Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, National Wildlife Foundation, Wyoming Wildlife Foundation and she was the 1997 Featured Artist for the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep … and the species they represent all being beneficiaries.
