  • Biography

    Vicki McInnes is a Melbourne painter skilled in realistic painting and drawing, working across various genres, and known primarily for her still life paintings in oils.
    Having studied Tonalist painting for quite a few years with Melbourne painter Don James at Montsalvat, Vicki follows this classic approach in painting, with no preliminary drawing, and always working directly from the subject.
    Originally from Alphington in Melbourne’s inner northeast, her parents’ house was built not far from the home and studio of her grandparents: William Beckwith McInnes who 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.
    Having attained a Bachelor of Arts at Melbourne University in 1974, in the following three decades Vicki worked in fashion design and development, retail and manufacturing management and more recently, interior design.
    She first exhibited at Montsalvat in 2013, then held another solo exhibition at The Light Factory Gallery in Eltham, and at Malvern Artists’ Society in September 2016. Awards include Best Oil Painting Brighton Art Society 2017, Best Oil Painting Malvern Art Society 2016, AGRA Medallion 2012, Highly Commended Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize 2013. She is a signatory member of the Victorian Artists’ Society.
    She teaches and runs workshops in drawing and painting, and continues to exhibit regularly at The Victorian Artists’ Society, Malvern and Brighton Art Societies and selected art shows.
