"Niki was always interested in art from a very young age, watching both her mom and grandmother painting. After taking a year off to travel through Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji, Kingsmill attended Concordia University for Fine Arts, where she studied both Art History and Studio Art.
Her greatest lesson in art, however, was when she started her An Artwork A Day project. After five years working in a bank and not painting, she made a pact to begin painting everyday for a full year, beginning January 1, 2015. Niki didn’t miss a single day, and as a result, has amassed an enormous portfolio of artwork, but more importantly, developed herself as an artist. Kingsmill has now worked in editorial illustration, web & print, architectural renderings, wedding work, and of course, custom paintings! Her prints and cards can be found in several retailers across Canada and the US."
