Handmade books and various art explorations

Fine Artwork by Nikki Smith

May 14th, 2013 by Nikki Smith

Welcome! What I love about the web is that my artwork is not only in Houston but has traveled around the globe. I’m glad that my artwork has now “struck a chord” with you, too!

A little about me: My artwork is greatly influenced by music. I seek to convey the transformative power of music through my artwork, often combining musical instruments and the human form to tell a story and build an emotional resonance.

My artwork and tutorials for artists have been published in Sommerset Digital Studio, and Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, where I write the “Getting Technical” column for artists. In June of 2013 I was awarded the FAA Artistic Merit Award, fondly referred to as the “Tony” Award for art, by my fellow artists at Fine Art America.

I also love creating one-of-a-kind, handmade artist books. My unique artist books and tutorials appear in issues of Cloth Paper Scissors PAGES magazine.

Besides continuing to create new pieces in my popular Music Lover’s series, I am crafting a paper dress and am eagerly awaiting the unveiling in a few months.
