Vicki Aimers was born in Essex and moved to Cornwall in the early 2000s to study at Cornwall College. She says: 'I am always inspired by my immediate surroundings. Domesticity is a constant element in my work. The theme of ‘home’ reoccurs in my pieces; as I question what it means to me and past generations. I enjoy combining a number of techniques such as printmaking with painting or stitch with drawing. Working with layers gives a sense of history to each piece. Often I photocopy my images, cut them up and re-collage them in various ways to make new pieces. By doing so, each image has some relation to the last; yet still moves forward.'
