"I try and fill my life with good people and lots of art - - making people feel welcome and like an Artist is my speciality! "Nicki's artwork is very personal. She uses her art to work through her feelings. She get's inspiration from her life experiences such as family, successes and struggles. She loves using color. She feels that art embodies ones whole person. Art just isn't about pretty pictures. Art is about who you are, how you feel inside and how the materials and techniques you select help you feel while you are in the the artistic process and after you are done reflecting on the work. Sometimes artwork is aesthetically beautiful and other times it is not to the viewer and all of that is why the power of art is so important. “ Nicki is the Owner/Founder/Art Instructor of “Exploration Art School” which was established in January, 2007.You May reach Nicki by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
