Seattle artist; primarily animal sculpture and paintings.

I have two rescued dogs, one old cranky cat and some goldfish, an untamed garden, an old house. I like vintage things, animals, bamboo, art, good food and randomness.

I am a bit of a workaholic where my art is concerned. I paint or sculpt a lot, almost every day.

Flickr has opened a new world for me of brilliant images and artists. I am happy to be here.

Please respect my copyright to my work- that is how I make a living. Do not use my images without my express written permission. You may post them in blogs as long as you don't alter the images and link back to me, thanks for understanding!

    "Nakisha to me is a true artist.
    Always creating wether it is with her garden, brushes, sculptures...\
    Her style is one of a kind, it is raw and wild, and at times soft and cute.
    But it always has that edge that I cannot explain with words that I love so much about her work.
    She is also a kind loving and caring soul. Rescuing animals and giving them a great life.
    She also rescues my houseplants that I almost kill!
    I love Nakisha."

    "Nakisha is one of my favorite watercolor artists, ever. As a Christmas present to myself this year, I purchased one of her little snow rabbit paintings on Etsy- he has so much personality, and the painting itself is like a precious little object. I adored it so much that my sweetheart surprised me on Christmas morning with a bundle of pins and magnets to put in my stocking, as well as a couple of her teeny tiny telephone wire / sky paintings. So lovely!"

    "This artist is one of the best out there. Her watercolors tug at your heartstrings and make your inner child celebrate. The victorian style of animals, especially rabbits, riding a tricycle or drinking a martini really appeals to me! An excellent find in the myriad of painters!"

    "Nakisha is a wonderfully talented artist and her bunnies have captured my heart. He paintings and drawings are almost alive and the subjects have real prescence. It is always a joy to see her new work - especially her doodles that are just amazing!"
