Nikki Rakov (b. 1972, Virginia), lives and works in St Augustine, Florida, the nation’s oldest haunted city. Trained as an artist through her Fine Arts undergraduate work, she is an MFA Painting Candidate at Savannah College of Art and Design. Nikki works in acrylic, oils, watercolor and drawing media that is layered into her paintings to express her visions of a mysterious world. Her paintings reveal figures and animals interpreted from dreams, visions, and ghost stories woven together in dark and spooky landscapes. Nature in her landscapes is derived from memory and imagination, taking on the role of another character in her expressive paintings.
