Nikky studied at Glasgow School of Art in the early 2000's. Since then she has exhibited in small galleries and completed commission work for clients.

She says nearly all her landscape work is inspired by her environment, particularly the stunning Northumberland coast, where she now lives.

"I try to capture what I feel when I'm out walking, as much as what I actually see."

Nikky doesn't plan a painting in advance. For her, it's a more instinctive process.

"I tend to work fast and energetically, creating different layers and embracing the unexpected, allowing the painting to reveal itself in its own time."

She works mostly with mixed media on canvas, creating fairly large pieces.


Nikky divides her work into three categories, landscape, abstract and floral.

Here's a selection of her landscapes.
