Passionate about art since she was young, Australian based artist, Nicky Kriss believes creativity is in her blood.
Nicky quickly turned her two-year long hobby creating abstract inspired artworks into a profession, that has seen her artwork featured on Australian renovation TV Series “The Block”, having commissioned a mind blowing four artworks in one single apartment.
This opportunity propelled Nicky’s name across Australia and her work now is proudly installed in homes across the nation, and internationally, United Kingdom, USA and Canada.
Nicky’s paints on canvas and linen materials with acrylic, ink and even house paints. Her main motivation is her creative ‘eye’ for bringing together colour assortments that are intriguing and inspiring, and her work bring feelings of calm, happiness, peace, energy and optimism.
Nicky is continually very humbled and grateful to have made some amazing connections, not to mention the opportunities which have presented themselves in such a short space of time.
April 2016 was her first exhibition - artexpo [SOLO] New York, showcasing her work on an international level. September of the same year, Nicky participated in “Art and Colours” a group exhibition in London.
In 2017, Nicky exhibited her work with Finders Keepers in Melbourne successfully selling over 10 paintings.
In June 2019, Nicky showcased in Melbourne with international art organisation “RAW Natural Born Artists”, and also exhibited at the Tatura Rotary Community Art Show.
When not elbow deep in paint, Nicky is busy being a mother to her nine and one year old daughters, a kindergarten assistant within the Steiner philosophy and a University student. She has travelled the world and loves to spend time with her family and friends.

We must love one another to grow with each other. It's simple. Erase competition and start connecting" - alex elle
