Niki is a papermaking artist who set up her business Pulpitations 11 years ago in a workshop in Dalby Forest. She now has a garden studio in Thorpe Willoughby near Selby where she makes handmade papers for her unique pictures, miniature boxes, books and other products along with papermaking kits.
She is inspired by trees and plant material always searching underfoot, in hedgerows, woodland or on beaches for interesting finds. In her studio she has drawers and boxes filled with treasures! She is also passionate about recycling and reusing everyday materials.
Niki originally trained in textiles specialising in miniature hand embroidery and her current work has returned to that scale, focusing on intricate details of nature. She is fascinated by the play of different light sources which highlight features through fine or textured handmade paper. She enjoys experimenting with surface pattern using plant and recycled paper pulps using her experience with techniques to teach and inspire others.
