Vicki Denaburg

For artist Vicki Denaburg of Birmingham, Alabama, half the adventure in pursuing her passion for painting is experimenting with different mediums to achieve her signature style of stunning color contrasts and textures. Style, sophistication, and interest blend in harmony in Denaburg’s large abstracts and contemporary landscapes, adding a sense of original elegance to any room in which her work hangs. Largely self-taught, Vicki considers painting the realization of a life-long dream, and delights in being able to contribute to the world of art she has long treasured.
