About Nikki:

Meet Nikki Frumkin, an artist and alpinist in Seattle, Washington. Her work is inspired by time spent hiking, climbing, and mountaineering in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Drawn to rugged, remote and wild places, her paper and watercolors go on all of her human-powered adventures with her. Nikki often paints from summits, ridges or alpine lakes. She believes there is magic in painting in these wild places, in capturing the light, energy, and movement of a place. Nikki’s work combines pattern, vibrant color, and energetic lines in an effort to capture and share the feeling of being in the mountains. The feeling that drives us to keep seeking out experiences in the mountains. Nikki’s paintings have been exhibited in shows across the country.
