Hi! I'm Nikki.

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

2021 - My husband and I at the top of Quandary Peak; one of the 14,000 foot high mountains or 14ers in Colorado.


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 (hiking up a 14er), exploring a new restaurant, learning something new, podcasting, meditating, or spending time with family and friends.
