Welcome to KiKi's Gallery

Originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, I relocated to Fort Myers at an early age and graduated from Fort Myers High School.
In My childhood there was domestic violence and sexual abuse and my art was an escape from this terror and uncertainty of a tragic home life.  However it has made me into the artist/person I am today, something good has come out of something horrific.
I had art classes in high school, attend some college and adult night school courses, however I am mainly self-taught.  I dabbled in art for years while raising two daughters.  The empty nest in 2007 allowed me more time to pursue my love of art and I now have an in home studio.  I work in many mediums such as photography, colored pencil, acrylic, cracked egg shell art (my own invention), masking tape sculptures, mixed media, pen & ink or whatever I am inspired to use.
As a member of the Art League of Fort Myers I built and managed the online presence of their website and Facebook from 2011-2014, held the position of board member in 2011-2012, 2nd Vice President in 2012-2013 and was President from 2013-2014.
All my art is inspired through Spirit of the Universe, and that Spirit is my muse.
Several works have found their way to homes of art lovers throughout the World
I had a solo show at Market America.
My work has been on display for various art shows at:
       Art League of Fort Myers

I’ve always wanted to paint a fiberglass statue and was honored to be the artist in bring Spirit alive. 
I am very grateful for Wicked Dolphin and the Cape Coral Art League for selecting my renderings to create ‘Spirit’. 
Spirit was installed after hurricane Irma passed through Lee County in 2017.
