Nikki Coffelt

Nikki Coffelt (@emboldenedexpressions) is a self-taught abstract expressionist and urban artist whose work has been exhibited internationally.  She is concerned with the organic expression and transmutation of primal energy and the collective shadow .  Nikki’s work has been heavily informed by 25 years of personal and professional exploration with non-ordinary consciousness — ranging from drug addiction to jungian dream work to vipassana meditation to somatic healing to astrology to animism to experiential studies in shamanism to completing her PhD in 2007 in depth psychology.  Nikki has traveled all over the world, values multiculturalism, lives as a nomad, considers herself a lifelong learner and remains in a state of perpetual awe regarding the ineffable beauty and pain in this world — which she seeks to convey holistically through her art .
