Artist Statement

Nikki Bestul is an acrylic painter from Eau Claire, WI. Her paintings are inspired by what defines humans as individuals. Our society trains us to keep personal emotions quiet, even when we want to scream. Through her art, Nikki is able to untether those emotions. Her life adventures are reflected on the canvas to show the perspective of her heart. In her work, she explores her deepest feelings. Universal feelings that are whispers muttered in the back of most peoples’ minds. Bright colors are displayed to show the spectrum of emotional release. Her art invokes inspiration, strength, and determination.
