On Saturday, January 14, 2017 “Wolves Have No Kings” opened at Bar@548 (548 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, FL).  Wolves is an all-women group exhibition displaying over 40 works from artists who reside in the Tampa Bay Area.  “Flight of the Lotus,” one of Nicki’s favorite pieces of 2015 is on display and will be up until February 9th.
If you’re in the St. Pete area, please check out the show! Bar@548 has pool table, patio seating and a great vibe!  “Flight of the Lotus” (pictured below) is available for purchase as well! 😉
Thank you and have an art-filled day!

7 Paintings in Morean Arts Center “There’s No Time Like the Presents” Group Exhibition

Nicki and her Mom at the opening reception.

Seven of Nicki’s latest paintings are currently on display in the Morean Arts Center’s group exhibition, “There’s No Time Like the Presents.” The exhibit features several local artists, with the art displayed in a retail store fashion (without title-tags for each piece).

Thankfully, anyone familiar with Nicki’s work will be able to spot her pieces, three of which hang near the window facing Central Avenue (see photos).
This is Nicki’s first group show in Florida, having participated in 5 group shows from 2009-2013 while living in Los Angeles.  She is grateful to have the opportunity to show her works in her hometown of St. Petersburg!

“Anywalls”- Good for brain and heart!

Activate “Anywalls” with abstract stimulation! The walls of waiting reptileseaandsunfunrooms. Office lobbies. Doctor’s offices. Children’s hospitals. Children’s rooms / play rooms.  Hotel lobbies. Pre-K through High schools. “ANYWALLS” are walls in any space that yearn for attention – they are usually devoid of stimulating imagery.  Why not stimulate the human imagination by adding an abstract painting packed with hidden imagery.  Finding all the creatures is a game unto itself.

Imagine spending an hour or more in a waiting room with your child awaiting medical attention. As you stare at the wall, all you see is a faded print of an old clay vase which even in its prime didn’t stimulate or distract you from the fact that you were in a waiting room. In fact, it only added visual insult to injury.

What if, instead you could gaze upon a painting that actually stimulated your senses? Well, it’s a dream of mine to get my artwork up on these otherwise bland ‘Anywalls.’  Please message me if you have any ideas or feel inspired to help make this happen!

Lovingly and gratefully,
