Vickie McMillan-Hayes has earned global recognition as a prominent wildlife conservation artist, exhibiting her paintings in nationally known art museums and galleries. Her work is featured both locally and internationally in renowned books, magazines, articles, and reviews. Created with paint, metal, or tile, her large indoor and outdoor installations engage the public through collaborative community efforts that foster unity between different ethnic, educational, and demographic backgrounds. Her public works encourage and inspire viewers as they contemplate the complex beauty of a single painting created with hundreds of people. Vickie’s projects are perfect for festivals, community events, schools, libraries, public buildings, hospitals, prisons, government organizations, treatment centers, foster care, health and human service, specializing with adults at-risk, special needs, the elderly, fragile and ill. Vickie also delivers workshops for the community at large, schools/groups (AP), speaking engagements/lectures, live performance painting, judging (HLS&R Art Judge 15 yrs), residencies. Workshops include demos of materials and technique while fostering cooperation, critical thinking, and life skills. Large scale murals/paintings can be based on a school’s motto, curriculum such as STEM, TEKS curriculum/goals, or other themes. Photo courtesy of Vickie McMillan-Hayes.
