Vicki McInnes

Vicki McInnes is a Melbourne painter skilled in realistic painting and drawing, working across genres, and known primarily for her still life paintings in oils. Vicki is a signatory member of The Victorian Artists’ Society. She lives in Kew, in Melbourne’s inner northeast. She grew up in Alphington: her parents’ house was built not far from the home and studio of her grandparents William Beckwith McInnes was awarded the Wynne landscape prize in 1918 and the first four Archibald portrait prizes in 1921-1924, and went on to win it a further three times, and Violet McInnes who also had a successful career as a highly regarded painter. 


Education

Having studied Tonalist painting for quite a few years with Melbourne painter Don James at Montsalvat, Vicki follows this classic approach, with no preliminary drawing, and always working directly from the subject. She held her first solo exhibition at The Light Factory Gallery in Eltham in 2013, followed by a shared exhibition at Montsalvat later that year, and a second solo exhibition at Malvern Artists’ Society in September 2016. Awards include Artist of the Year 2012 with The Guild of Realist Artists, Highly Commended with The Waterhouse Prize 2014, Best Oil Painting with Malvern Artists’ Society 2016 and Brighton Artists’ Society 2017. She teaches and runs workshops in drawing and painting, and continues to exhibit regularly at The Victorian Artists’ Society, Malvern and Brighton Artists’ Societies and selected art shows. 

Arrange a meeting with Vicki at The Victorian Artists' Society in East Melbourne to view artwork.
