Hi, I’m Nikki, an artist, illustrator, surface designer, branding and web designer, and podcaster currently living in the historic little river city of Paducah, Kentucky.

After an accidental 10 year career as a creative director for IBM, I moved from Atlanta to Paducah as part of their award-winning Artist Relocation Program. I traded cubicles and conference rooms for the home studio I shared with two big dogs and a cat named Pixel. I have a wide variety of interests and skills, including drawing, encaustic mixed media, jewelry design, surface pattern design, web design and development and logo design.

I love to travel and will happily jump on a plane to spend three months in Mexico by myself or hop in my car and drive cross country with my favorite travel companion, my four-year-old pit bull, Rocket. This travel lust, plus the desire to never live a conventional life, led me to sell my house, buy an old school bus and convert it into a home on wheels that I can live, work, create and travel in! Read on to learn more about my journey!

Starting where I am…

Starting where I am…

In an apt metaphor for everything else in my life, I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to start really writing and documenting my skoolie story.
