Hello, and welcome to Tidal Horizons!

I'm Vicki, a busy mum who dreams of being a full-time illustrator. For as long as I can remember I've always been happiest when drawing and painting. After many years working in banking and accounting I finally got up the courage to leave it all behind and retrain for a career that would make me happy. Over six years I studied Illustration, History and English Literature. Shortly after I graduated I found out I was pregnant with Little Bear, who is now three, so my plans had to take a back seat for a while.

I began Tidal Horizons at the beginning of 2017 with this blog and an Instragram page, to share my journey as I juggle being a full-time mum with my ambitions as an artist. It's not always easy but along the way I've managed some private commissons, including illustrating a children's book. My work has also been featured twice in the Draw a Dot Instagram Open Call for fashion illustration.

As much as I hope to make my living as an illustrator, it's something I'll always do - I love it too much to ever give it up...
