Nike Bottalico's Profile
My name is Nike and I am the artist behind Objects and Oddities. I am a strong believer in the power of positivity and energy which is why I am drawn to art. As far back as the 1960s I have been an active artist, poet, and seeker of found objects. I am drawn to upcycling found objects because I believe there is great beauty in this world but sometimes it is overshadowed by the tragedies of time and myopic perspectives.
My friends like to joke that I am like a crow. There is an old myth that crows scour the world looking for sparkling objects to bring light to their otherwise dark nests. I am of that myth. I seek to bring light to the world around me. As a formally trained Social Worker and an artist I have a unique eye that allows me to see the ability for transformation all around me.
