Who is Vicki K

Background & Specialties 

I grew up in a super tiny sugarcane processing town of South Johnstone in Far North Queensland, Australia, there were about 125 houses, 14 of us in my final year of Primary School and it always rains.

I am a photographic artist based in North Queensland, specialising in Botanical Photography with a focus on colour psychology. My practice delves into the intriguing nexus of nature, humans, colour, and flowers, capturing the essence through the lens of macro photography. By exploring the profound connection between humans and nature, I skilfully illuminate the conscious and subconscious influence of nature's hues on our emotions. Through my floral compositions, I artfully weave elements of nature, art, mood, memory, and place, allowing viewers to experience the profound power of colours and flowers intertwining to evoke emotions and rekindle our innate bond with the natural world.

 

The Mission

Wall Art For Your Mood was created to bring contemporary and unique art to your walls with a focus on colour and botanical fine art.

Capturing the secret world of flowers and creating wall art for your mood.  

Let me welcome you into my world garden and share with you the enjoyment, wonder, feelings and motivations that the colours of artwork can bring and the moods we can create in your personal environment. 

Each person’s experience of the world is unique, just as each image you are drawn to is unique to you and the feelings it brings out. 

Each colour in nature influences our minds and mindset e.g. green stimulates a growth mindset, and red can make us feel powerful, and you'll find the images I have on offer for you are all categorised in their dominant colours. 

Let me help you receive the information you need to select the best wall art for your space to create the mood you want, need, or desire in your life, as each colour has an influence on you, and the more you understand it, the more control you have over your environment and your mood.

Explaining the Quality & Detail of the Wall Art

To create the highest quality Archival Fine Art print, four factors come into play - resolution, ink, paper, and printer type.

To create a high-quality print, the camera used must be able to do so with a high level of resolution. To compare, most digital photos are recorded at a resolution of 72 DPI on the screen, or “dots per inch,” and the image file of an art print needs to be at least 300 DPI, because the more dots of colour that can be printed in a small area, the more detailed the final image will appear.

When ink is called “archival”, it means its been designed specifically to be resistant to weathering and fading beyond 100 years. This is typically achieved using inks that are pigment-based instead of dye-based and used on paper designated as archival.

For a print to be classified as a Fine Art Print the paper used to print on must be museum-grade. This essentially means it's of archival quality and will last 75-100 years if cared for properly

The above is the method we use here at Vicki K Photography, which we also refer to as Giclée (zhee-KLAY) meaning - fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers.

However, if you purchase a Poster Print you will find that these artworks are not printed using the Fine Art Archival Giclee method, and are available at a lower price point, these prints are still expected to last 25 – 50+ years without fading given the environment they are kept in.
