Originally from New Zealand, Nikki is a realist artist now based in Wokingham, Berkshire, UK. Working mostly in charcoal or oils, she specializes in figurative paintings and drawings of people and animals (including equine and wildlife subjects), portraiture and still life.
Her work can be found in private collections both locally and around the world as well as gracing the walls of corporate premises. In addition to taking on commissions, Nikki releases collections online (to which her subscribers get first access) and is an exhibiting member of the Reading Guild of Artists and the Wokingham Art Society and regularly exhibits at the international Contemporary Art Fairs.
Conveying a strong narrative, Nikki's work will often capture a fleeting emotion or the energy of movement in her subjects. Sometimes it is simply about capturing the light that falls on the subject in such a way to evoke a certain emotion or memory in her or in the viewer.
