Nikki uses a mix of mediums to create vivid abstract landscapes in an ongoing exploration of her dreams.
As a child Nikki was adopted and traveled from Colombia to the United States. She grew up near Chicago and never went anywhere without her cerulean crayon. Every scrap of newsprint, placemat or book she encountered was covered in blue drawings. As long as she can remember she’s been driven to create art. It has been her greatest source of tranquility and new challenges.
In college Nikki established a strong foundation of fine art knowledge and training. She also gained a background in design after becoming intrigued with the intricacies of contemporary visual communication. After college, she focused strictly on drawing in black, white and gray before adding the complications of color back into her fine art work.
Today, Nikki works out of her art studio in Bellingham creating colorful abstract landscapes. When she’s not exploring the beautiful state of Washington she’s creating art. Nikki uses a mix of mediums to create her dreamscapes. She paints with pastels and acrylic paint, covering large surfaces with layers of color. Nikki also enjoys using pigmented beeswax, which is a wonderfully spontaneous medium that can surprise even the artist while she works.
