Niki has a passion for combining nature and the mind by using realism and abstract realism (often together) in order to capture the beauty that lies within the mind, body and spirit and the world around us.
Niki uses mainly Acrylic and liquid paints to create her pieces.
She uses brush, sponge and hand techniques to add the fine details to her work, while using drip, spray, smudge and splash techniques for the backdrops.
Born in 1989, in St Thomas, Ontario, Niki Hawel is a self-taught artist that focuses on acrylic as her main medium. Based out of London Ontario she paints from her home studio as often as her busy life allows it. A mother, full time worker and a volunteer organizer, she does her best to balance it all.
