About Naykii

Sales 185
On Etsy since 2012

It began with a print!

Who is Naykii? When I was little, friends couldn’t pronounce my name, René, and so I was called Naykii instead (pronounced Nay-key). I create artworks, stationery and items for the home. Born and raised in South Africa (but calling Australia home since 1996); I currently reside in Miami, FL with my husband Matt, cats, Jax and Felix, and dog, Lulu.

My designs are inspired by nature, travel and everyday experiences. My prints are carved and printed by hand using a baren or a press. Some prints have color added with watercolor paint, paper or thread. Rather than discarding trial and imperfect prints I recycle and re-imagine them into one-of-a-kind collages, 3D artworks and other items.

My cushion covers are inspired by my collages and prints. They are screen printed with water based ink onto heavyweight 100% cotton fabric with felt, buttons and hand-embroidery adding a special touch.

My tea towel designs are designed, carved and printed by hand - a real labor of love! Each towel will vary slightly and is perfectly imperfect.

Many of my prints are particularly suited to nurseries, children’s rooms and those young-at-heart. I hope Naykii’s original prints will be treasured and perhaps passed on to the next generation and that other Naykii items become treasured keepsakes.
