Vicky Stromee’s fascination with photography began at an early age. Her father was a photographer and her mother a painter and a pianist. From an early age she was immersed in the arts. Watching the magic of an image emerge from the developing tray in the basement darkroom; spending afternoons lying under the baby grand piano, with the waves of sound resonating around her. Texture, pattern, fluidity, and change – these earliest influences continue to unfold in her work.

Vicky has lived in Tucson since 1976 when she moved here to pursue a Master’s Degree in Counseling at the University of Arizona. When she retired from a long career in counseling, she turned her attention to photography, ultimately finding her niche in nature photography. Her work with a close-up lens reflects a unique eye for composition and form. Vicky’s work hangs in galleries, as well as in private and corporate collections from Vermont to Oregon, has been featured in the Phoenix Home and Garden magazine and on magazine and book covers.
