Introduce yourself

My name is Niki McNeil and I am a designer, artist and blogger!

I’m a Carolina girl at heart but I live in Atlanta now and I love it.

I am a creator by nature, so I’m always looking for ways to express myself in an artful way. I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember and always will. It comes naturally to me!

I studied Interior Design for two years and in that time I discovered that the design world is so big; I don’t want to tie myself down to one discipline. I’m creating a career of designing many things, from homes to commercial spaces, graphics and eventually products.

fav lyric from a song

“Patience is a virtue, life is a waiting game, peace must be nurtured and all the money in the world can buy you nothing!”

– ‘Seasons Change’ Corinne Bailey Rae

who and what inspires you?

People living their lives authentically inspire me. The practice of living your life in a way that’s congruent with whom you truly are. Blogging is my way of cataloging my inspirations and has connected me to some amazing people! Other bloggers and artists I find through blogging constantly inspire me. Color, texture, pattern and lettering stimulate my creativity and traveling always gives me new ideas.

icons past & present

I always admire Nina Simone & Corinne Bailey Rae and I’m constantly inspired by new ‘icons’ everyday!

the nublack philosophy/mantra according to Niki McNeil
