I paint what fascinates me...
Still life, landscapes and especially people.
I paint in Oil on linen canvas and in Watercolor.
Sometimes I draw with French Pastel.
I design and illustrate.
I capture the likeness that I want, every time.
My work speaks more than words ever can.

DETAIL: 'Portrait of Alice' Oil on Board. 12" x 16" Private Collection.
"In her portraiture, Nikki always captures the likeness of her subject; thus, encompassing far more, in her view, than mere figurative representation. While possessing an experienced technical ability, Nikki avoids at all costs being 'moored in a sea of academic portraiture' (Henry James). Nikki draws on her deep instinctual feelings towards the portrayal of her subject, as well as using her knowledge of Impressionist and Expressionist drawing and painting skills. In her view, this unique approach conveys the real sense of the person, revealed in oil paint or pastel, and this is what makes Nikki's portraits so completely satisfying to behold, while at the same time so enduring as works of art."
July 1992 Nikki Danby Solo Show at The Cadogan Gallery, London England.

I use different fine art mediums for my wall art, such as oil paint, watercolor and pastel. Each subject decides its own best medium and manifests in its own individual style.
I enjoy walking in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by walks in nature. I love capturing landscapes and still life from the natural world.
