Nikki Monaghan is an artist and designer working from her studio in Falkirk, Scotland.
She studied at the Scottish College of Textiles and over the years has worked as an interior stylist, designer and artist, and has also spent time involved with community arts.
Nikki's subject matter ranges from narrative landscapes and seascapes to quirky birds and figures.
'I love colour and my paintings evolve by layering up acrylics and oil pastels, creating textures within my paintings. Working from memory allows my work to take on a stylised abstract feel'.
She is influenced by many things…the weather, the Scottish landscape, how I feel when I wake up in the morning, anything that sticks in her head!
