Niki is a local artist, born in Ottawa, and currently works in her studio at Studio Space Ottawa. Niki’s approach to painting is organic and colourful. Niki uses the natural properties of the paint and medium to create paintings with a wondrous sense of fluidity. Her work evokes a sense of peace and serenity that one can find in nature all around us.
Mother Nature has bestowed us with such beauty that I am completely overcome by it’s power. When working, I often prefer not to know exactly how a piece will turn out. I let the paint and medium do what it wants to do with a little guidance. I end up with something that I couldn’t deliberately recreate even if I tried. That unpredictable result is what keeps me coming back again and again.
