Nicki hails from Te Awamutu originally where she studied art through at high school, achieving Bursary Art.
Following school she moved into business made, returning to painting after several years for personal pleasure.
Inspired by nature, Nicki has always “layered” her paints as she loves to introduce texture into her work. Being very tactile herself NIcki is always happy for her work to be touched as she believes that touch/feel and sight/vision are inextricably linked in the pleasure of art.
Nicki's art can be seen at The Little Black Gallery during KOAST and at times during the rest of the year.
