Nikki Wood is an accomplished and well respected painter and art teacher. Her paintings encapsulate the peace and tranquillity of local tree lined roads and dense green forests. An aficionado of the weekend country drive, Nikki has found inspiration for this collection of paintings from her drives in the Northern Rivers, Sunshine Coast Hinterland and the Scenic Rim.
Nikki loves the journey to these places as much as the destinations themselves.
“I have a deep love of dense green forests and tree lines roads”, says Nikki, “Standing among tall, towering trees, bubbling creeks and hearing the sound of birds echoing through the forest floor, provides a sense of place and home for me.”
Nikki’s passion for the places where she lives and travels is evident in her lush landscapes painted in acrylic paint on canvas or in soft pastel on paper. The dabbled light of the scenes in her work give the viewer a feeling of being in the moment, right in the place where Nikki found her inspiration.
