Since the day that she first touched an oil painting, Vivian was drawn to the medium as a fly to a flame. That memory of that first touch remains with her to this day and continues to fuel the excitement and drive to create impressive art. Vivian was educated at Michigan state university, where she received a major in Business and a minor in Fine Art. In the last 26 years, Klinck has successfully developed her own recognizable style. Her work has been included within a number of group shows and solo exhibitions. Plumtree Gallery located on the outskirts of Detroit Michigan proudly includes Vivian’s pieces in their collection. Vivian has received Blue Ribbon awards at the Gold Rush Days fine arts show and has shown her work at many other Arizona art exhibitions.Vivian is a juried member of the Wickenburg Art Club and the Arizona Art Alliance. A colourist at heart she spends her winters in Arizona and summers in Ontario thus never lacking subject matter which allows her to develop and create her extensive and exciting portfolio. That portfolio includes portraits,still life and her foremost love, landscapes. To date, Vivian has successfully completed 948 works of art and has been awarded the Artist of Merit Award in this year’s Gold Rush Fine Art Show. “I hope that some future artist will run their hands over one of my paintings and feel the excitement that so inspired me at a young age.” ....Vivian Klinck
