Hi, I'm Nikki Oliver! I'm an illustrator based in Charlotte, NC.
I love anything to do with art. Not only do I love drawing my own work, but I also love the history of it. I received my Bachelor's in Art History from Queens University of Charlotte in 2013. In 2020, I earned my Master's in History and Public History from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a thesis on two women art instructors from Black Mountain College. Most of my art training has been through Central Piedmont Community College, where I participated in painting, sculpture, and what is now the Airy Knoll Arts Project classes.
Work wise, I have experience working and interning in galleries and museums. These include The Mint Museum Randolph, McColl Center for Art + Innovation, The Frontier Cultural Museum, and Anne Neilson Fine Art. I currently work in corporate security and retail sales while making art on the side.
I live with my two cats, Remy and Tenzin, in Charlotte, NC. Outside of art, I'm an avid bike rider when the weather is warm and true crime podcast listener.
