Niki Parry is a visual artist working primarily in acrylic paint. All her life, she has worked with many different types of artwork, drawn primarily to the projects where she can focus on and explore colour. Niki was introduced to fluid acrylics five years ago and has been intensively developing her skills and techniques ever since.
Her artwork mostly represents natural scenes in an almost abstract sense, utilizing silhouettes to create an intense contrast and enhance the bright, vibrant nature of the dynamic colourful settings.
She opened an Etsy shop in 2017, and has since participated in many Whitehorse exhibitions and arts and crafts events.
Niki moved to Whitehorse 22 years ago from Vancouver Island, and lives with her husband and 3 boys. While much of her time outside of work is spent taking her boys to skiing and hockey, or the lake for paddling practice, she’s still able to find time to pursue her passion for colourful art.
