The Fantasy Art of Nikki Burnette
Hello! My name is Nikki Burnette and I am a fantasy artist. I paint all sorts of fantastical creatures in watercolor. Fantasy art is where my heart lies. I love being able to escape the reality of our world for even just a few hours and enter a new fantasy realm where witches play tricks on Halloween Night, fairies fly around the sweet smelling rosebuds, and mermaids swim gracefully through the water with their dolphin friends. I sell my original paintings as well as a wide range of different products that I create myself in my studio.

Challenge #115 - Sketch by Sandra

Who knew washi tape could be used in so many ways.  Backgrounds, flowers and just a piece to add a highlight to a project to name but a few.  I love the inspiration we get from seeing your wonderful projects.  As usual the Winner and Top 3 will be announced next week so become a follower and you won't miss the post.

Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful Heather from

Heather Valentin is creative , award winning, modern-day fantasy and whimsical artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years. 

She began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age. 
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and brush stroke. Her subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time. 

Heather's artist portfolio has expanded to include such clients as Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils and can now be found at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across 
the globe. 

Her latest foray is to immortalize her popular drawn characters Eleanor and Pickles in a children's book of their own.

Our theme is a sketch by Sandra

Prize is 3 images from the Lacy Sunshine store
