Nikki Young Art
Who am I?
I am an independent artist. My point of difference is that my art works are intended to portray positive energy. My catch phrase... Positive energy... Own it.
I'm lucky enough to be a mum to 6 young children. 6 is a great number. It's rounded, warm and plentiful. That's my family.
I actively surround myself in positive energy, in my interactions with others and in my environment. The importance of good vibrations and positive energy can't be over estimated. I go out of my way to bathe in the good stuff. I do that when we go away camping, when I sit at the table with my family or when I pat our dogs. Simple stuff that feeds the soul.
My art is an expression of good energy. I love the idea of providing a window of colour and warmth that is intended to energise.
I work with a variety of mediums including photography, ink, pastels, pencil and acrylic and water paint.
I'm a photographer. I took up photography when I became a mum. I've always loved photography and I swear I see things differently to most people. I love finding the spark and the gentle light in people's eyes.
In addition to being a mum, artist and photographer, I'm a qualified childcarer.
Children make me reach deep inside and pull something special out. I'm truly honoured to be able to work with kids. I feel energised and love strategising to get the best out of children.
I'm a singer songwriter. I play guitar, piano and have been writing music since I was 13. I've written music for children's television, sung the national anthem at the basketball finals and have performed on JJJ and commercial radio.
I'm number 11 of 12 children. I feel lucky to have been born to such a big family. 11 is my lucky number.
I'm all about kind food, positive energy, gentle hearts and honesty. I'm a tiny 5ft tall and I'm really strong. I laugh easily and I cry with laughter but I can be a big force.
I'd really like to make this world a better place.
