Woolly prints are inspired by NW artists we have come to admire.
No brush. No pencil. Nikki McClure creates high-texture images from black paper with an X-Acto knife. "Everything is connected. It is all one piece of paper, yet now it holds a story." Nikki resides in Olympia, Washington where she swims in the Salish Sea and picks berries all summer.
I attended the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. I studied ants and drew them (as well as everything else in my environment: birds, trees, flies, nudibranchs) and hung out with Artists. Upon graduating, I worked for the Department of Ecology. After one year, I left and became an Artist. Drawing ants, and ducks, making record covers, mittens for K records, performing on tour.
In 1996 I made my first papercut for the book, Apple. I have been cutting ever since. I now split my time between making a yearly calendar and making children’s books. I become a full-time berry picker in the summer. That is, when I’m not watching birds, hanging out with moss, and swimming in the Salish Sea. I show my artwork at Land Gallery in Portland every November, as well as shows internationally. I sometimes teach and I am always trying to learn how to do everything better.
I currently live in Olympia, Washington under cedar trees along the eastern shore of the Southern Salish Sea.
