Meet Nikki Cade everyone!
Like many of the creatives we love to follow these days, we became friends with Nikki through Instagram. First there were some "likes" on each other's photos, then some commenting, before we graduated to REAL friends where we chat on the phone and giggle a lot. Instagram is starting to sound a lot like Tinder for creatives who just need inspiration and encouraging new friends in their community and are in no way looking for a hook up. Newly married over here everyone, not looking for anything but friends to journey through the small business creative world with! Ok that totally might be a stretch, but we have met some amazing people through Instagram whom we now consider true friends to walk through life with. We hope to share more of those people as we slough our way through this blogging thing...I swear I'm trying to get better about posting! Anyways, I digress. Back to Nikki. Isn't she the cutest!
Nikki lives in Texas, where she creates beautiful artwork in her home studio. Check our her website, Nikki Cade Studio. Her wanderlust spirit is inspired by travels and the world around her. She paints and uses mixed media in her art pieces, and is launching her very first collection of fine art globes TODAY! You heard me right, fine art GLOBES! These are not your typical Pinterest grade DIY globes people. These are gorgeous works of art that flow from Nikki's SOUL. You need one, or five. Just check these babies out.
I won't share too many pictures of her studio on here because Design Sponge just did an amazing job of that -- check it out HERE to see more of her space and hear her story. But here's a sneak peek at what you can get excited about. If you've been following us long enough, you know that we are not minimalistic and we have an obsession with COLOR. Nikki's studio space is fun, inspiring, and JOYFUL. No wonder she is creating so many beautiful things in here!
