I have traveled with artists to France and Cuba but as a way of celebrating Canada’s 150th I wanted to invite artists to share with me One of my favourite spots in my home province of Saskatchewan; the Cypress Hills. In 2012, 13 & 14 I was fortunate to be given a paid position as Guest ARTIST in RESIDENCE there for up to 6 weeks each year. My duties were to hike, paint and offer a few art classes to the visitors in the park each week. My recent show of landscapes on copper held at the Art GALLERY of Regina’s Outside the Box Venue was inspired by my time in this beautiful location.

Our stay coincides with Cowboy Poetry events in nearby Maple Creek so it is sure to be a great time of painting, artistic fellowship and immersion in western hospitality! 

 I have several plein air painting holidays planned for 2017 / 2018! I invite you to join me. Details at http://www.nikkisportraits.com see the Shop-Now section or blog for details or call me at 1-877-335-7655 toll free in NA.
