Nikki is an exhibiting illustrator, graphic designer, and videographer based in Charleston, SC, USA. Her work is informed by her meditation and yoga practices, her passion for social and environmental justice, and her connection with Mother Earth. She loves to illustrate album art and logos. She is also the Media Manager and Lead Designer for the College of Charleston's Office of Sustainability, of which she is an alumna.
Nikki uses simple tools- black ink pens on paper- to create lush scenes of interconnected plants, animals, and women. She approaches her drawing practice as a sacred ceremony. Her detailed, organic line work emulates the subtle vibrations that connect all beings, inviting the viewer to reconnect to that space within themselves. Nikki often uses herself as a model to relate her personal experience during this era of crumbling patriarchal systems and the rising of collective feminine consciousness.
