Vickie McMillan is a native Texan who creates breathtaking wildlife and nature paintings that advance global conservation causes. Drawing upon her extensive field study and award-winning photography, McMillan’s paintings are both accurate yet stylistic.  Her unique style of impasto painting was developed over time to accommodate her disability called Essential Tremors. In-order to create fine brush strokes she has to hold her breath while embracing her hand with the other for steadiness.

She is a donor, active/lifetime member of many organizations who raise funds to protect our parks, land, and animals while promote and educating wildlife conservation. Not only are her works of art in-demand among collectors of fine art but also her large wildlife and nature paintings hang in corporate buildings. She is known to bring people together and promote conservation through collaborative outreach art projects involving hundreds of people in the creation of one painting.

Her works have been seen in but not limited to: Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum Birds in Art show, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Wildling Museum, the Bennington Center For the Arts, Museum of East Texas, Museum of the Gulf Coast, the Great Plains Art Museum, Artists for Conservation Exhibition, Vancouver, Canada and 2016 Artists for Conservation calendar, Hunting Art Prize finalist, 2011 Houston Safari Club Artist of the Year, and published in books and magazines such as Fine Art Connoisseur, Southwest Art, The Artist's Magazine, PleinAir Magazine’s best overall Acrylic Award Acrylic Award, Artist Portfolio Magazine, Richeson75 Animals, Birds and Wildlife, and North Light Books Best of AcrylicWorks 4
