About

Hello, I’m Nikki and am an aritst from the U.K. I paint in oils, my subjects are mainly seascapes, landscapes and sometimes flowers.  I live by the sea, surrounded by beautiful countryside and am greatly touched by nature. I love the different seasons and am inspired by light and colour. Up until a year ago, I painted from life, sketches and occasionally photographs.  But I am now on a new journey, painting only from my memory and feelings, which for me is a thrilling, challenging and liberating experience!! This blog is about that journey.

  1. Thank you for visiting my blog. I am relatively new to blogging too. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. My mom was also sick and came to live with us and past away two years ago. It was very helpful to hear you were able to continue painting. Your work is beautiful. I love your style. I can really feel the movement of the ocean in the seascapes. I really like how you play with portion as well. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

    • Thank you so much for your very kind comments and for following me. I am following you too now, it will be lovely to watch your progress!! So sorry to hear about your mum – its always tough when you lose a parent.

  2. I just slipped over to your other sight to look at your work. Very nice. I used to paint. Myself. Many years ago. Mostly acrylic. But then I got hooked on collage work and well, thats that. But you have great talent. Have fun with it.

  3. Hi Nikki,

    As a fellow Brit (now living in the US) I just wanted to say, “Hello!” and thank you for taking the time to ‘like’ my new “Mosaics”. I kinda started out late in the art field, but now it’s got me hooked and it’s a great release for me. It’s very encouraging to be getting so much praise and encouragement from more established and talented artists – it can get a little discouraging at times, especially being passed over for addition in group shows, etc.

    PS – Love the blue wellies in the photo above… brings back memories of Blighty!

  4. Hi – wonderful looking paintings, I too love seascapes and landscapes. Glad you’ve ‘taken the plunge’ and it’s great to meet and link up with a fellow traveller. Congratulations, I will look at your site with keen interest. Thank you so much for following and kindest regards. David

  5. Dear Nikki,

    Your paintings are inspiring and downright gorgeous! I especially love the color palette that you use.

    Thank you for liking my post; really appreciate it.

    Cheers,
    Yousuf
