Vicki French Smith: Reflections of Sea & Sky
This February, we proudly present “Reflections of Sea & Sky,” featuring the mixed media artwork of Darien artist, Vicki French Smith .

About the Artist

Darien artist Vicki French Smith is an award-winning artist and teacher. Motivated by nature’s wonders, her art focuses on the magical movement of sea and sky with their varied rhythms and self-replicating tempos. 

“There is tension and excitement as reflections and patterns of composition come to life,” Smith says. For the last few years she has been painting seascapes and skies on metal and canvas to create textures and interactions with the variable moods of nature. The methods of strokes vary as she twists and turns her brush, squeegee, hands and fingers to make the surface dance. Colors of blues are successfully blended with complements as she applies the pigment, wiping it away or layering colors. This can be seen in her works of watercolor, acrylic, and oil.

A graduate of Miami University, Smith has studied at the Yard School of Art, duCret School of the Arts, Center of Visual Arts, and Silvermine School of Art. Painting for more than 30 years, and having taught students and adults, has inspired and motivated her journey. Smith has been active in her local community; teaching at the Darien Arts Center, serving on the board at the Silvermine Guild Arts Center, and as co-president of Fairfield County Plein Air.  

She is currently a member of Connecticut Women Artists, Rowayton Arts Center, Florida-based Naples Art Association and the Arts of Bonita Springs, and Silvermine Arts Guild. She has appeared in the PBS series, Landscapes Through Time.

Smith’s paintings and prints have been featured in boutiques along the New Jersey shore, libraries, private collections, and various galleries.

Her exhibit runs through February 29 and her paintings are available for acquisition. All are welcome and admission is free. To view some of her work, visit our  online gallery .
