Inspiration and Teachings
Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
❆ Hi there! I am Vicki Speck, a Chilean - German artist living now in Cache Valley, Utah.
❆ Mostly I do watercolors, create paintings in my studio and in the great outdoors.
❆ I grew up in a huge city but always wanted to stay connected to nature. It was hard to go outside and enjoy all the blessings Nature gives us. I found out that painting kept me closer to nature and I realized it was very therapeutic to me.
❆ My inspiration comes from the connection I seek after with nature. That is why I always try to pay attention to the colors of the sky, the smell of the rain pouring in the earth, the shape of the mountains, the colors of the sunsets and sunrises, and of course..., the breathtaking night skies!
❆ I love this beautiful world we live in so I try to give it a voice through my paintings!
What I stand for
❆ I aim to work in harmony with the natural environment rather than disrupt it. This means I deeply consider the impact that I have on nature and do not sacrifice its health or wellbeing in order to create work.
❆ We are part of this world and we are responsible for it. Every creature and being is worthy and deserves respect and protection within the natural circle of life.
❆ I am a firm believer that Nature is meant to be enjoyed by everyone. You don't need to be a mountaineer or avid hiker in order to be outside. In the words of Jenny Bruso:
"The outdoors should be for EVERYBODY and EVERY BODY"
If you ever find yourself in Northern Utah, I’d love to connect!
If you like painting, let’s go on a paint hike!
