To Commission a Portrait from Vicki begins with  a discussion between the person Commissioning the Portrait and the Artist to create an original one of a kind Portrait in Oil or charcoal of your loved one or yourself.
Vicki is able to work from exclusively from photos but a sitting from life for a color study can be a useful part of the process.These details can be arranged between the artist and subject.
Backgrounds, size,compositions and other props which are personal to the subject can also be discussed.Often a visit to Vicki's studio to see other work can help to work out these details.

In some cases Vicki will travel to the subject or a visit to the studio can be arranged for Vicki to acquire the reference material to work from.

A 50% deposit is required to be on Vicki’s Portrait Commission schedule.

Commissioned Portraits


We have a portrait of my husband done by Vicki. What I love about it is her use of colour and shading catching the cheerfulness and kindness of my husband. It is a brilliant portrait and the light colours against a darker background works very well, the lighter being his face and neck. The use of light and shadow and the way she has caught his laughter lines and lines under his eyes is exemplary. It is very realistic and captures the essence of him. I never tire of looking at it and my friends and family just go wow....this is Alan., as in Vicki has caught him the way that they see him.Mary HollingworthPortrait of Alan Hollingworth,
Having seen the portraits of leading politicians gracing the halls in Parliament Houses , Vicki Sullivan is indeed a Master of the art.Her paintings of my granddaughters are indeed exquisitely detailed and so true. They could simply walk out of their frames.Photographs cannot depict the detail these paintings show. Skin tones and texture are true and tresses of hair cascade with life and vitality, the eyes are bright and alert and hands are truly dainty yet child-like. The composition is complete, a moment in time perfectly captured. Treasures indeed.Judith MuirPortraits of Matilda and Bonnie Muir,
My meeting with Vicki was with my daughter on her 12th birthday. My daughter Georgia did a sitting with Vicki which lasted about an hour. Over that time Vicki made me daughter feel relaxed & so special,  that the pictures Vicki took was entirely stress free. It is difficult for a child to be so relaxed with a stranger, but Vicki is herself a calm & gentle natured person. The portrait of my child is the perfect rendition of Georgia. She is at ease and tranquil in the painting. Vicki has for all time captured the very essences of my darling girl. The painting exactly portrays Georgia, still child like but on the verge of blossoming into a teenager. The paintings I have from Vicki are priceless to me. I am always charmed by them. I am always captured by her skill as an artist and her sensitivity as a person.Dayle PurcellPortrait of Georgia Purcell,
