Vicki Elder Paints on Vintage Postcards and Magazines

Vicki Elder is a bookstore owner and an illustrator from UK. She is the founder of the brand called "The Fox in the Forest" where she showcases her artwork. Instead of choosing canvas as a conventional surface to paint, she paints on vintage postcards & ephemera.

To make her art she uses any piece of paper including grocery receipts, envelopes, birthday cards, letters, and sometimes even magazines as old as from 1827. All kinds of feathered and furry friends including owls, parrots, sparrows, squirrels, mice, badgers, roosters etc. You can see more of her work from the past on her Instagram and find the one-of-a-kind pieces in her online store.
