Niki Sands, Las Vegas Nevada/USA Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement Las Vegas / Nevada - Born in Detroit Michigan to Greek parents in 1960, Niki's passion for the Mediterranean is evident in many of her works, exhibiting vitality and a vivid use of color, while still maintaining a certain softness
An emerging artist, Niki paints elusively, yet constructively with both oils and acrylics, with one never quite knowing what to expect from her next, as she enjoys experimenting with various styles and techniques "I believe an artist bares his/her soul when painting. I truly paint from within; my art is inseparably bound up with my personality and soul"
