Nikki’s artwork is based on symbolism, mythology and different cultures. Her inspiration is taken from a variety of sources and she is particularly interested in the way in which ancient societies created a series of visual symbols to represent the things which were important to them.  She investigates myth and legend and draws parallels between societies, showing that although many people have different beliefs we are all united by visual iconography. She has developed a unique way of working with a variety of media, particularly textiles. The work is heavily embellished and is often on an ambitious scale.
