Art by Vykki

A native of San Diego, Vykki Mende Gray began painting in 2011 in Watercolor and Sumi-e (Japanese brush drawing). A member of the San Diego Watercolor Society, she often participates in the monthly member shows. In Spring of 2015 she exhibited for the Save Our Heritage Organisation in their third Sunday shows in association with their show, 100 Years of Art in the Park.

Vykki paints primarily in a semi-realistic form using a technique featuring stylized exaggerated detail, and her watercolors tend to strong colors. She specializes in smaller, affordable paintings which fit well in modest homes. And she paints a LOT of pictures, so these are just a sample. Just ask — she’ll be glad to show you.

All paintings shown on this page are watercolors unless otherwise marked. The prices quoted for paintings include matting and framing with glass. They are available for local pick-up or delivery in the greater San Diego area. For other arrangments, please contact Vykki at info@loscalifornios.com.
