Description

Vickie Tonna is currently training as a landscape and portrait painter under Tonio Mallia and Debbie Caruana Dingli respectively.
She was born in Malta in 1959 and graduated from Malta University with a B.A in English and Italian, and later with an M.A. in English Literature, and then worked as an Italian language teacher and an English literature teacher for a number of years. She studied the technique of water colour over a couple of years under the tutorship of Debbie Caruana Dingli and this led to her taking part in a collective exhibition of new artists at Gallery G in Lija. She also followed diverse courses in acrylic painting at Caroline Lawrence’s studio and watercolour with Doranne Alden, interested mainly in landscape, still-life, and portraiture. As a landscape painter, she finds the motifs that inspire her in the varied scenery during her travels, as well as in the warmth of colour present in the local landscape and limestone buildings. Her preferred medium is now oil paint and most times it is the palette knife rather than the brush that suits her technique, even in portrait painting. She took part in a joint exhibition with Jackie Magri entitled “Take Two” in 2017 and recently her art has been selected to be used as labels for the latest edition of Marsovin’s 1919 wine bottles. During the launch, she had her first solo exhibition.
