My vision of what I want to create with other artist-healers is so real to me that I know it already
exists on some other universe layer:
Artist healers seeking sanctuary from worldly concerns are welcome to…Continue

can house paint (interior or exterior) be used on canvas?? i have several cans of left over house paint i'd like to use up.
For about a year now I've had a few of my assemblages in a couple of galleries in my area: Des Moines and Ames, Iowa. Eventually, I'd like to try and find a gallery or two in one or more of the "urban" areas in states bordering Iowa: Kansas City, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Chicago for example.
My issue is: what's the best way for artists to find galleries that sell similar work? One simple answer is to drive to each of these cities and visit the hundreds of available galleries. This,…Continue
Today I had a little trip down to Sussex, my favourite corner of the world... to see Mitsi Brown's solo show in the cutesy village of Alfriston. It was a perfect day and really warm for late March, clear blue sky and birds singing fit to bust - fantastic!
Here is a video of the day.

The Creative Spirit leads me into many worlds. I’ve trekked alone in the Himalayas and lived naked in virgin jungles of Hawaii. I’ve been scientist, monastic in a mystic order artist and teacher. I seem to learn the same lessons wherever I am: to have faith in the unknown; to ride the wave of the moment; to let go of the illusion of control; to plumb the depths of mind and emotion without fear or judgment. And best of all --to…Continue
"What is Constant in Art" is a question posed by my model drawing instructor.
So, what are some answers you could think of?
I'm very excited to say that I'm finally in the process of building a proper website, with all the cool stuff that artists put on their websites. Below is the temporary URL. When it goes live the address will be, www.nikkostudiospace.comContinue

Today I took a trip to Chelmsford in Essex (east of London where I live) to go and see the new pop-up shop a group of Essex artists have started. My friend Joan who is also a member here had art displayed there, the really eye-catching pieces being the three mannequins she had in the window:…Continue
