Hi! I'm Nikki.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself...

PROFILE

My journey started with art and painting, and my path lead me to graphic design, photography, and so much more. All the while my love for this magnificent earth has grown every minute.

 

After some time learning and getting hands-on experience in the design field, I decided to open my own company and become a freelance graphic designer. This has been a wonderful part of my journey, and I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with some wonderful people and clients.

I also dabble in some photography, mainly in the area of food photography. But I love some abstract and landscape photography as well.

When I'm not looking through a lens, designing on a computer, or holding a paint brush, I am either enjoying the outdoors in some way, exploring a new restaurant, learning something new, podcasting, meditating, or working on my newest venture Inspiration Avenue.
