Nikki is a talented artist in so many disciplines and the Guild is fortunate to have her as a member. We could not be anything but inspired by the breadth of her passions and skills, she in turn is inspired by artists such as Van Gogh, Klimt, Monet, Gaudi, Lautrec, the pre Raphaelites, and nature, history, birds and colour. Nikki showed us an amazing array of her work of embroidery, enamelling, silver-smithing, stained glass, furniture painting, upholstery and needle felting.
In amongst all this Nikki's uses recycled materials to dazzling effect in her multi media works such as her crown made for this year’s entry to the Madeira Competition. Last year she was competition winner with her beautifully imagined 'Mary Poppins' carpet bag. She is rightly proud of her ability to recycle and reuse.
Nikki seems to be able to turn her artistic talent to almost anything as well as doing her bit to save the planet. Thank you from the members of the Guild for giving us a glimpse into the amazing world of Nikki Vesey Williams.
Thank you Amanda R for your report and the photos.
I was so very sorry to have missed your talk Nikki, another time! Ros
