Vicki Nigoumi studied at Willesden School of Art and Central School of Art and Design ( now Central St. Martins ) London, gaining Central School diploma and N.D.D in printed textiles in 1961.
In 1962 she secured a five year position as tutor in drawing at Khartoum School of Art, Sudan, and whilst in Khartoum established a studio for screen printed textiles.
Returning to England in 1967, Vicki worked as a freelance printed textile designer, for both fashion and furnishing fabrics. Clients have included fashion designers Gina Fratini, Roland Kline, Jean Muir and Jeff Banks. Furnishing designs included in Artizan portfolio and commissions for Warner & Sons and Lewis & Wood among others.
Her preoccupation with still life painting has enabled her to pursue an interest in colour and drawing and a fascination with the relationship of objects. Many of her paintings include ceramics by contemporary studio potters from her own collection. In recent years Vicki has also been creating and exhibiting her own figurative ceramic pieces.
Since her first exhibition at the British Council in Khartoum in 1967 she has exhibited in a number of galleries in the U.K including Medici Gallery, The Mall Galleries, Bankside Gallery London, Eastern rooms Rye, Alresford Gallery and regularly at The New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham.
