Nikki Pilgrim, a New Hampshire native, received her BFA from the Maine College of Art in 2007 with a focus in printmaking. She has been living and making art on the coast of Maine ever since.
“I am a habitual maker, I have always been compelled to be producing work in a variety of mediums, after completing my undergrad, I found my happy place in painting.
I love opulent color, movement, pattern, & funk. While some of my paintings contain symbolism, my work of late is purely inspired by the beauty that we are surrounded by here in Maine.
I take endless inspiration from being outside in my garden & in nature with my family. From the mountains, to the woods, to the beach. I find so much therapy & influence from my time spent on the coast, especially with the ocean, & watching the waves. The abyss of the sea is like a temple to me, the moody blues, constantly changing, the movement, the reflection of light, & its vastness.”
