Hello, I am Vickie Legere and welcome to V-Art Portrait and Fine Art Photography!
I am a visual artist and educator living in Rosedale with 3 dogs & one cat. To express my creativity, I began using photography. Consequently, I belong to several local artists’ and photography groups. These include the Chilliwack Visual Artists Association since 2009 and the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club since 1996.
I teach entry level photography at the Chilliwack Cultural Center. In the summer, I co-ordinate the photography team for the Harrison Festival of the Arts.
My work has been displayed at the O’Connor Art Gallery, Chilliwack Museum, the Chilliwack Art Room, Kariton House Gallery (Abbotsford), the Mission Art Gallery, Harrison Festival of the Arts, the Royal Hotel, the Chilliwack Regional District office, and the Art & Wine Walk (Abbotsford).
I have been published internationally in calendars (Prospera Credit Union & Multi-faith) and magazines (Bluegrass North).
My fine art images are inspired by the world before me – allowing me to see the marvelous in the mundane, the magic in a moment and then share my vision with the viewer.
I invite you to take a moment to step into the picture, explore the color, consider the impact of black & white, or wonder about the meaning, and savor the emotion. My images are the window… the journey is yours to take!
Prints are available in various formats, sizes & prices.
Above all, a passion for portraiture emerged when I recognized a desire to reveal to others, their own personal ‘beauty’ – to embrace and celebrate the amazing person they are – at any age! The portraits I create are not just about a pretty face and nice lighting – your shoot should reflect your story, to show you as you are or how you wish to be!
