Lover of animals and spur-of-the-moment road trips. Enjoy gardening, experimental cooking projects, and “trying” new crafty adventures. I love to create any form of digital art and I am an artsy-fartsy fused glass artist as well 🙂

What Makes Me Tick?

I’m an avid outdoor gal. For years, I was a closet nature geek – only my family of four really knew by the random facts I shared with them repeatedly about animals and plant life. The web of life is interesting. 

Obviously, I now feel a comfort level and embrace sharing the randomness of Nikki with the world.

I try to seek out my need for adventure by traveling the Midwest.  “Where in Wisconsin is Nikki?” should be my motto.

I’m haphazard and wordy by nature. For better or worse, I own those mad skills and I will complete everything I start….eventually.
