On Etsy since 2017

Live life fully, and live it from the heart.

Hello, there! So glad you found my little shop, Drawing On My Heart. I hope you find something here that makes your heart happy. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like a private commission!

My name is Nicki, and I’ve been an artist longer than I can remember. Always sketching and painting as a kid, so going to art school was a natural thing to do after high school graduation. After several decades as a graphic designer, I now work full time as a fine artist from my home studio in historic downtown Leesburg, Florida.

My paintings are typically made with acrylic paint in an intuitive and somewhat loose style on paper, canvas, wood or found / salvaged materials. I’ve learned to listen to my intuition when it comes to subject and inspiration. The final result may not look at all like what I thought it would, and that makes the creation of art magical for me. It’s an alchemy where paint and substrate combined with intuition and trust brings in a feeling that wasn’t there before. My mission as an artist is to create a positive impact by making art that uplifts, and my mission as a human is to live with joy and compassion.

I’m drawing on my heart for inspiration, and for the courage to put my work out there. Each painting I make is an act of love. Creating these love offerings fills my heart with light, and it’s my hope these tokens of love make your life even that more joyful.

    The Husband, Giver Of Love And Support

    My husband's love and support is the only reason I'm able to have this Etsy shop. I would have never thought I could do it otherwise. He is my biggest fan, and my biggest love. He also gives great foot and neck rubs, though not at the same time...

  • A print shop

    Leesburg, FL

    This wonderful local print shop does a great job printing my invitations on quality paper using a state-of-the-art commercial digital press. I email your approved invitations to them, they print them, trim them out on a cutting machine and let me know when they're ready for pick up.
