​I create colorful works in my home studio, using acrylics, inks & oils to create expressions on canvas and wood panels. My most recent Mako board- textile art, contemporary paintings of mother trees, mountainous landscapes and spatial abstracts are inspired by nature. Throughout my life I have enjoyed hiking, camping and laying out under the stars, especially in the mountains. From the Blue Ridge to the White Mountains I joyfully paint the colors I visualize. Wandering through the woods seeing broad strokes & vivid color of future paintings everywhere. 
Sketching by observing life, people and their daily lives, traveling and walks in nature, is how I am inspired. Once a work is underway, I become imbued and the till the color, line and surface texture evolve.  The large scale format of some of my landscapes helps to create an environment into which the viewer is able to see themselves within the painting.

My intention is to express the on-going changes occurring 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. Resonating with the arboreal, based on my love of trees, time spent with family in the mountains and nature. 

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
