Spring Market Vendor Profile: Nicki Ault

I have an intense love for the natural world - landscapes untouched by human presence, specifically the Boreal forest, the larger than life skies and the wild grasslands of Saskatchewan. I am a proud prairie girl and I love to paint, both in my studio space at St. George Artists' Studio and en plein air, immersed in the landscape I love. Although I aim to be representational, my goal is not precise realism, but rather to create a collection of marks that express how I see and feel the subject in that moment. I am increasingly interested in patterns, rhythm and light and I whole-heartedly embrace colour as a source of joy in my work.
