Wild woman are an unexplainable spark of life. They ooze freedom and seek awareness, they belong to nobody but themselves yet give a piece of who they are to everyone they meet. If you have met one, hold on to her, she'll allow you into her chaos but she'll also show you her magic. Nikki Rowe
I create large scale multilayered paintings and mixed media of visual contemporary art using oil & heavy body acrylic paints. My intention is to express the on-going changes occuring in the natural world through a cohesion of color.
Each work of art has a personal story, either experienced or through observation. I love to travel and hike through the mountains. So often I bring my camera & sketchbook along and draw everything observed along the way. Even sitting down in a local diner, I have found, holds many creative views. Traveling has become a part of my artistic process.
As I create each work I become emotionally driven to depict multiple perspectives through a series of paintings. These series vary in form and themes. From small works to large-scale geometric lines, figuratives that depict the transformation of the female archetype and my landscapes, called Pathways, each becoming a contemporary abstract form of nature. Each piece resonates with the arboreal, based on my love of trees, time spent with family in the mountains and nature.

It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. Leonardo da Vinci
