SAFARI 2010-2014 | Experience the Vision of Artist Vicki Lynn Rae

SAFARI 2010-2014

SAFARI series is a series of paintings honouring my South African roots. My Dad was born in South Africa and, while I was born in Vancouver, Canada, I was blessed with several trips to visit family and friends in South Africa early in life. I was deeply moved and inspired by the sights, sounds and smells of the Motherland. I painted 'Lioness' (included in this series) at age 15 and then went through a long dark tunnel and this series re-emerged in 2010. At that time I painted furiously often working 14 + hour days in front of my easel! By 2012 life was changing and I had to slow down and my focus shifted; I continue to add to this series as inspiration strikes me.
