Vivian Quaid is an artist and freelance illustrator from New Orleans, Louisiana. She works primarily in oil and watercolor paint, as well as ink and other mediums. She studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts, under Saskia Ozols Eubanks. Deeply rooted in the culture and spirit of the South, Vivian’s art celebrates the simple, delicate beauty of everyday life. She enjoys painting beloved subjects naturalistically, yet with a sense of whimsy. Simple, white backgrounds allow the subjects to stand prominently on their own. Frequently traveling and living around the globe, she loves the freedom to bring her work wherever her feet may lead her. She takes inspiration from the different environments that surround her and explores new cultures through her art. Vivian is currently working on her first collection of New Orleans oil paintings, which will be released Spring 2017.
