3 Oaks Studio was started in 2005 when Steve and Vicki moved "home" after his military retirement. The studio came about from Vicki's love of the painted finish, the use of color and her desire to help people discover their creativity in a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere.
Together they opened the studio next to their vineyard (3 Oaks Vineyard) on the property where the 3 Oak trees are (hence the name)...and the fun began!
Since then, 3 Oaks Studio has expanded into two locations in Fresno and Clovis.
The home studio now serves as Vicki's "creating space", where she spends time developing new workshops and doing custom work.
Vicki grew up with a paint brush, marker or crayon in her hand. Her love for being creative began at a very young age. She will tell you that one of her first memories as a child is sitting in the kitchen drawing a picture of her mother (of which she won an award for). While her love for all art started young, her professional background and training spans over 30 years of creating custom decorative paint finishes for clients’ furniture and home interiors.
Over the years Vicki has completed several training workshops for all different kinds of professional decorative painting techniques and materials. Vicki has been personally trained by Annie Sloan and is a USA Trainer for Annie Sloan Interiors. She has a passion for Chalk Paint®, and believes that it truly is the best paint in the world.
Vicki starting teaching in 2005 as 3 Oaks Studio began, as a way to help others learn to transform their homes and enjoy being creative themselves, rather than having to pay someone else to do it for them.
Her vision with 3 Oaks Studio is to inspire others to get creative and give you the knowledge and tools to do-it-yourself!
