Nikki approaches her drawing practice as a meditation. She uses simple tools- black ink pens on paper- to illustrate interconnected ecosystems of flora, fungi, fauna, and the female form. Her organic, detailed line work emulates the subtle vibrations that connect all beings, inviting the viewer to recognize their responsibility to actively respect and restore the Earth’s intelligent systems. Nikki often uses herself as a model to relate her personal experience during this era of reawakening feminine consciousness.
