Vicki Pierpont was born in California and raised in the Bay Area. She presently lives in the Lamorinda area, where she paints weekly with a group in Walnut Creek and Orinda. She graduated from the University of Oregon with a major in Art Education. She has always had a deep interest in the arts but only started painting seriously five years ago as a diversion to caring for gravely ill family members. Her primary medium is oil, and she paints a variety of subject matter, including the abstract paintings on display. She has work in private collections throughout the greater Bay Area, the wine country, Lake Tahoe, Southern California, and in Coeur d'Alene and Sun Valley, Idaho. She has also displayed her work in galleries in Palm Desert and Soquel, California, and in Ketchum, Idaho.
