Introducing Vicky from Paintspots and Splinters!!

I want to introduce you to my friend and PAFA/OFG team mate.
Vicky is one talented gal and makes me giggle!  She has a wild sense of humor and I so enjoy her!
She is also having a fabulous giveaway on her blog so head on over and get signed up!!
So here is Vicky and some of her fabulous art work!!
1)Your first name and name of your business and how you got your business name?
Hey everyone! I am Victoria, Vicky to all my friends, and owner of a small company called “Paintspots and Splinters”.  My business name appeared to me after many hours of contemplation. I seriously just thought about everything that I used to make my crafts.  Paint and wood was at the TOP of the list!
2)How long have you been in business?
I ran a small business under my name for about 8 years until the twins came along in 2005 (we have 6 children all together). I took a break, as one would expect with a baby and ESPECIALLY TWO, and started up again using Etsy to sell my goods in August of 2010.

3)Who or what inspires you?
Anything and Everyone!
4)What is your creative style, primitive, country, folk art?
I’m a decorative painter and LOVE whimsy. I call a lot of my pieces “Primsy”; a little whimsy mixed with primitive! My favorite painting technique is the shabby chic style although I’ll try a bit of everything!
5)What medium do you use in creating, clay, fabric, altered art, wood etc.?
I like to work with wood and LOTS of it but I’ve also found pleasure in working with fabrics and painting on them. I use acrylic paints but also dabble in Oils in some of my Fine Art pieces that you can see on my blog as I don’t sell those. I do sell decorative wood crafts and Primitive/Whimsical Make-Dos. This year I’m introducing some small home decor like picture frames, signboards, small shelves, and some small stools.
6)What are your links?
Please stop by and visit Vicky's links.  Her work is Fabulous!


  1. I adore this gal. I just love EVERYthing about her...her talent, choice of subject matter, but MOST of all her heart and her sense of humor. I guess you could call her a triple threat. She easily transitions from wood to cloth to whatever surface she can paint upon. Whenever I see the name Vicky I'm there.
