Nikki Coulombe

Ultimately as a traditional artist, I’m most comfortable painting or drawing, but my approach toward art emphasizes value in the work process where means to expression are diverse, and despite the outcome, creativity is an attitude toward life.
I grew up in Alberta, Canada, then in Ontario, worked as freelance artist while my children were young. On-site work for interior designers and their associates, with limited budgets and deadlines, extended my creative edge and capacity for improvisation. Until moving to the US in 2002, volunteer work at schools involved developing educational projects around themes of Art History, multiculturalism and environmental issues.
Capabilities include illustrations of almost any subject, people and pet portraits, acrylics paintings with a preference for large formats, custom designed murals, fabric design, small sculptures.
Style is influenced by medium, format, and responses dictated by each individual piece as I work.
