Tikarma Vodicka is a self taught artist working in acrylics.
Born in Adelaide, South Australia, Tikarma now resides in semi-rural Strathalbyn with her husband, musician Jamie Mcpherson and pet chickens.
Tikarma grew up surrounded by art in various forms, observing the skills primarily of design, painting and textile arts.
Tikarma’s artwork encompasses themes which explore emotion, curiosity, the driving forces of survival and self identity.
Tikarma’s artwork has nature as a pivotal element within every piece. Influenced by the various landscapes of desert, sea and rolling hills of South Australia, each work is never wholly distinct in it’s sense of place, yet at the same time familiar. Tikarma also brings a love of Celtic, Persian and Turkish design into her artworks along with folk elements from her cultural links to Austria and Czechoslovakia. Currently focused on small flowers and abstract designs, Tikarma aims to create calming, one of kind artworks.
Tikarma’s paintings are always evolving and her style constantly being refined as she walks the landscapes of her state and the flowers and impressions she encounters along the way.
When not painting, Tikarma also enjoys, gardening, crafts, music and astronomy.
