Originally from New Zealand, Nikki is an artist now based in Wokingham, Berkshire, UK. Working mostly in charcoal or oils, she specializes in figurative drawings and paintings of people and animals, portraiture and still life. Many of her pieces convey a strong narrative, capturing a fleeting emotion or movement of her subjects.
In addition to taking on commissions, Nikki is an exhibiting member of the Reading Guild of Artists and the Wokingham Art Society and her work can also be found in the Artscope Gallery, Reading.
In 2017 she received the Paul Banning Award for Drawing and the People’s Choice Award from the Wokingham Art Society, along with a Dry Technique Award from Daler-Rowney – a week’s residency at their manufacturing site to try out new techniques, methods and materials.
