Nikki Laxar was born in Burlington Vermont and continues to create her art and raise her family here. She graduated Essex High School and Tech Center in 2003 and is a self taught artist.

She discovered the magic of watercolor in 2013 and became hooked to the medium instantly. Ever since, she has blended her talent of detailed ink illustrations with watercolor pigments to create a whimsical animal inspired line of reproductions and stationary goods. Nikki is now starting to experiment with acrylic paints creating in depth celestial creations and calming moon phases. She is currently exploring a series of scientifically accurate nebulas and other out of this world discoveries. She feels we are so connected to what is within our atmosphere and out, which makes it extremely therapeutic for her to create these pieces and share them with others.

Nikki Laxar has participated in a handful of local gallery exhibitions. Her ultimate dream is to participate in an artist residency so she can build a body of work to share as a solo show.
