Vicki Salcedo –  Artistic Director

Vicki Salcedo

Vicki Salcedo spent most of her formative years influenced by the creative fashion merchandising geniuses of the world’s finest upscale department store, Neiman Marcus, in Dallas, Texas. Her Dad worked at the store as the Men’s Division Visual Department Head, and has since retired, after 45 years of service. Vicki would play, as a child, in the display department with fabrics, foam core, ink and made signs for fun while her Dad worked nights and weekends. At school, Vicki focused on theater set development and art, and consequently knew exactly what she wanted to do after graduation. She began a career in visual merchandising, like her Dad, and acquired jobs with several prominent boutiques, department stores, apparel marts, and worked in special events and fund raisers in the Dallas area. After several years of freelancing, Vicki was excited to be hired to work in the Visual Department for Neiman Marcus .

At NM, great opportunities presented themselves in the way of product premiers for a great number of famous designers in the fashion world, and for special seasonal promotions or events. It was an exciting time, and Vicki enjoyed incorporating her sense of style, design, and the theatrical while blending other artistic elements. Sets and scenery, signs and fashion were always mixed together for display for visual merchandising. She requested to work in the sign shop to expand her expertise. While there, she learned the finer points of illustration and graphic development as used in marketing. 

During this same time, Vicki spent a short time in studies with Dmitri Vail, a famous local portrait painter. Celebrities and Hollywood stars who passed through the Dallas area for various shows would often be invited to do sittings for him. The time Vicki spent with Dmitri Vail helped her form a special interest in oil painting, and brought out her natural ability to capture the likeness and depth of personality in her subject mater. Dmitri Vail said this of Vicki: “She’s not just good – she is damn good!” Vicki considers herself to be very fortunate to have been taught by some of the masters of quick and effective visual communication, whether it be in 2D or 3D, or in any other form of presentation.

Since the Neiman Marcus years, Vicki has taken every opportunity to create and work on fantastic scenery and the design of sets for various production companies throughout the Southeast. Most notably, she volunteered her time and efforts for eight years to the Rotaru International Ballet in Atlanta, GA, helping with the design of scenery and props, along with costume development and restoration. While there, Vicki also worked backstage, planned and implemented fund raisers, as well as provided services for publication and media.

Over the last 30 years, Vicki has dedicated herself to various artistic endeavors.  Most of her work has been freelance, and more recently, working as a graphic artist creating advertisements, publications, playbills, illustrations, logos and event decorating when the opportunity presents itself. She has only recently returned her hand to serious oil painting. Currently, she works independently in web design and media publication layout, and much of her time is spent working with clients for their graphic art needs. She is  presently accepting new business through the Art 4U Studio website., and is happy to be your pocket artist, creating and customizing work for all of your artistic needs.
