In 2018, Vickers was the recipient of a VIVA Award through The Jack and Doris Shadbolt Foundation for the Visual Arts. Vickers holds an MFA from Simon Fraser University (2013) and a BA in Critical Studies from Simon Fraser University (1994). Vickers is represented by Macaulay & Co. Fine Art. In 2019, Vickers was an artist-in-residence at BAF, which amounted to a solo exhibition titled Chrysalis of new works on paper and canvas which conveyed a “dreamt and imagined space of floating and transformation within memory of Anishinaabe territory” (Vickers).
Vickers’s practice in painting, sculpture, and performance, explores her own identity and how it is situated in the world in relation to place, space, and history, often through traditional Anishinaabe techniques and materials. Vickers has developed her Ovoid Felts series for the last few years using a wide variety of materials and colours. While this rendition is presented in a grouping, Vickers also presents her felt works individually. Ovoid Felts is a unique work.
