Nikki Johnson


Nikki grew up on the North Shore of Lake Superior. The lake is her solace and her inspiration. She shows her work regularly at Just for the Season Gallery and On the Canal Salon and Day Spa in Duluth as well as in Watercolor Society shows. Nikki likes to paint big and bold. Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once he grows up.” Nikki's goal is to remain an artist. Illustrating children's books has helped her toward that goal. She and her book partner, Joy Dey, have published two books, Nightlight and Agate and they have a third, One Gorilla, in the works. A sampling of book illustrations is included below.
