Nikki is a professional artist who works from her home studio in Falkirk, Central Scotland. She studied at the Scottish College of Textiles where she gained a BA (Hons) in Printed Textile Design.

 

Focusing mainly on landscapes Nikki finds inspiration from harbours, cities, villages and towns throughout the UK with a nod to the narrative. Her textile background is still apparent within her work with her love of colour and pattern a strong feature

She layers up a mix of acrylics, inks, oil pastels and charcoal to create a stylized, simplified depiction of her subject.

 

"I love colour and I’m always in awe at the emotion it cancreate. I want to paint joyful scenes of places, where memories are relived, and connections are made."
