Hi! My name is Nikki and I can't wait to meet you! I am an artist and designer, originally from New York City and now living in Columbus, Ohio. I've been teaching art and fashion classes since March 2014. I love to help my students hand sew, draw designs, and use a sewing machine to make clothes they can actually wear!
I went to Parsons School of Design and earned a degree in Integrated Fashion Design in 2013. I also studied Fashion & Accessories Design and Illustration at the University of the Arts London. I'm an enthusiastic and dedicated person and my teaching style is all about being curious, and learning the tools you need in a fun and easy way. I will help you make your skills work for you, to express your unique sense of creativity. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
I am also certified in Meditation Science and Techniques. I teach meditation workshops, lead guided meditations, and private lessons for anyone of any age who wants to learn to be more mindful, manage stress, and be in the present moment. Meditation is also proven to improve focus and creativity. It is never too early or too late. :)
I can't wait to hear from you!
