Vicky Jocher was born in Stuttgart in 1964. In the same year, her grandparents and parents emigrated to Ireland what where Vicky spent her formative years going to school and subsequently to the long established Municipal College of Art, in Cork from 1982 to 1986 finishing with a (BA Hons) degree in Fine Art.
A number of years later she taught art at Clongowes Wood College , Boarding school for boys (where James Joyce went to school).
During this time she also gave art and craft workshops for children in her neighbourhood and local village. She was also a colourist for some projects at the then National Cartoon Company of Ireland. (see publication: Ireland a Graphic History, Michael Scott)
In the late 90s she also fell in love with various therapeutic concepts and became a journalist to two major Irish national Newspapers, and wrote about complementary
and alternative health practices whilst also studying homoeopathy and subsequently practising for a number of years as such.
The next logical step was to combine art and therapy, thus she completed a foundation course in art therapy.
About a decade ago she successfully created, exhibited and sold her designer jewellery across eight galleries in the south west of England. For another few years she designed and created bespoke teddy bears for a very niche designer market.
This last decade of creative work firmed her decision to go back to university full-time and complete a BA hons in Illustration at Plymouth University.
Vicky now illustrates books.
