Born in Maryland, Vickie grew up with a love for music, nature and photography. She earned a BA in Psychology at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.

In 2001 she moved to Asheville to pursue music and studied photography at Blue Ridge Community College. Vickie Burick Photography launched in 2017, as did her band Many a Ship, weaving together a career based in her passions.
