                  Although best known for her bronze likenesses, Rhonda really enjoys creating whimsical pieces with her trademark titles and her marvelous legends.

                  As a budding artist, young Rhonda began drawing on everything within reach and, often, out of bounds. Nonetheless, such early promise was quickly recognized and encouraged by family and teachers throughout Rhonda's under-graduate schooling. Naturally, she declared a fine arts major in college but was frankly never entirely pleased with her own work in painting and drawing.

                  It was not until she was married and the mother of two that Rhonda was introduced to the work of sculpture. A sister-in-law, who wanted to take a class at the Art Institute in Wichita, Kansas asked Rhonda to join her...and it was love at first touch. Clay was the medium Rhonda knew to be her own. After working in terra cotta for several years, she switched to bronze after being disheartened by so much breakage during their intrastate move to Colorado.

                  "I want my work to evoke emotion and preferably a grin." Although best known for her bronze likenesses, Rhonda really enjoys creating whimsical pieces with her trademark titles and her marvelous legends.

                  The Vickers moved to Denver, Colorado, in 1984 and Rhonda has spent the past years working and studying with George Lundeen, "my mentor," Lincoln Fox, "the best communicator I know," and others. Today, Rhonda lives in Castle Rock, Colorado with her husband, Tommy "my greatest sales representative!" and works in her new home-studio/gallery.
