Vicky McKay was born in Cumbria, north west England. She grew up between England and Scotland, crossing Hadrian’s Wall regularly. Now living in south west England, Vicky works and studies as a visual artist.


  • Royal West of England Academy 165 Open Exhibition
  • Black Swan Arts Open 2017
  • Royal Watercolour Society Contemporary Watercolour Competition 2018
  • Currently studying at Bath School of Art and Design, for a Masters in Fine Art.


Reaching for what I remember and what I can see, I’m creating a topography of identity. I work mainly with water-based materials on resilient hand-pressed papers or recycled supports. Each piece is worked through layers, digging through colour and responses to marks, looking for resolution.
