Nikki Monaghan is a relatively new-comer to Galleria Luti. Her quirky and individual style of painting is inspired by Scottish landscape scenery and coastal areas.
The simple forms and use of texture illustrate an image of a memory of a particular place rather than a representation creating, naïve and often humerous landscapes. Images are simplified and shapes and colors develop into pattern. Nikki's use of mixed media includes oil pastels, gouache, acrylics and pencil often layered on top of each other and scratched beneath the surface to uncover hidden color.
More details about Nikki and her work are on the website www.gallerialuti.co.uk
Nikki's pieces are in exhibition in the gallery until 8th July.

Nikki Monaghan - Artist
Sandie and Marsha Luti: We are a mother and daughter business team who love art, jewellery and unusual crafts and couldn't think of a better way to jointly celebrate our passion than by opening a gallery. We are incredibly lucky to have some wonderful artists who exhibit with us, mainly thanks to Peter (husband and dad) whose work within the art sector has helped us greatly with creative contacts.
