DID YOU KNOW….
I am a Canadian that currently calls Mazatlan Mexico HOME.
I have a Masters in FINE ARTS from Emily Carr University of Art and Design (ECUAD 2020) and a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD Drawing Major 1993).
I am a perpetual student always looking to learn new skills and techniques.
Names I answer to – Nik, Nikki, Nicole, Mom, Mrs.Rehill
I sign my artwork with my maiden name…..N.LeBoutillier
I grew up in the heart on the prairies where the distant horizon, bitter winters, the vast blue sky (and meeting my husband) inspired me to travel beyond its borders.
I have lived in Manitoba, France, Nova Scotia, Alberta,, Angola, Kuwait, Malaysia, Libya, Tunisia, Ukraine, Oman, Mexico and summers in the East Kootenay’s in beautiful British Columbia.
For the first time in many years my family are all living in the same time zone (PST) bordering the Pacific Ocean.
This is a photo of me in my Calgary Seafood Market studio with a drawing that led me towards abstraction in my practice..
