Vivienne Littley moved from Surrey to Kilmington, East Devon in 2007 with her daughters; Lucy and Daniela Skye. She has always been interested in art, but the inspiration to start painting in a professional capacity came with relocating, drawing inspiration from the stunning Jurassic coastline and ever-changing skies.
Vivienne's artwork is wonderfully diverse, ranging from intricate pen and ink portraits, to large, abstract acrylic canvases. Her paintings have a calm, often ethereal, non literal quality. The intention is to convey an atmosphere that brings a sense of peace and tranquility, an escape from the everyday. The harmonies between sky and water and the intense power contained within are what the artist is drawn towards. Vivienne uses acrylics, inks and watercolours, often utilising the effects of iridescent and metallic mediums to create light and depth that varies when viewed from different angles. For this reason, the paintings need to be seen in person to be appreciated in full.
Vivienne’s artwork has been displayed in various venues throughout Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and Surrey.
Please view the gallery to see a selection of artwork that is currently available for purchase (at the time of uploading). Commissions are also welcomed, whether it’s a pet portrait or a new painting. Colour schemes are taken into account, and Vivienne is adept at either matching or using colours to enhance and contrast. Vivienne has created house portraits as gifts for moving into a new home, and wedding portraits for a new couple. Your favourite actor/singer can also be drawn or painted. Paintings and portraits are unique and special gifts.
Vivienne is the official artist for EveryDoctor UK - a doctor-led campaign organisation, fighting for a better NHS. For more information go to www.everydoctor.org.uk/about.
