Mixed media art work in progress by Nikole Rae Peacock.

About Nikole Rae Peacock, mixed media artist.

Nature is my source of renewal and inspiration. My spirit feels most alive when I am outside painting,  working with wood, and landscaping. I thrive in breezes, birdsong, and cool grass under my bare feet. I love to create freely, playfully, and expressively ..releasing all rules and expectations …allowing the journey to unfold with curiosity and an open heart.” NRP

I have been an artist all my life, primarily showing and selling nature photography.  A few years ago I embraced a deep soul-calling and began painting on weathered wood salvaged from old barns and burn piles. — NRP

I am drawn to the natural texture and patterns of wood grain, which inspire seascapes, skies, beaches, and mountain ranges.  I combine various pieces of wood to create tranquil and inviting scenes…. each one entirely unique.

Barn boards, driftwood planks, and recycled wood pulled from a burn pile bleached by the sun, naturally outdoors. Artworks in the future for Nikole Rae Peacock.

Feels amazing to be painting on old weathered barn wood. These seascapes came alive. The new paintings are for the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk on Aug 7th!  Nikole Rae Peacock

I love creating my own textures, using molding paste, gel medium, sand, fiber and papers. I build layers upon layers into many of my paintings, enjoying the evolution and lessons learned as I go.  I listen to my creative spirit, I feel where my energy is naturally flowing and follow it.

When early layers disappear under fresh paint, they continue to add depth and richness, I have found to be a gentle practice of letting go, allowing change and discoveries to unfold… a true lesson for all of Life.

A final touch of salt water flicked onto the board and this painting is ready to bring vibrant color to someone’s life. It’s made with hefty boards that add power to its presence.

“After 43 years enjoying life around the country, I have returned “home” to the beautiful Oregon Coast.  I find refreshment and peace in my forest studio near Astoria, surrounded by nature, with magnificent ocean beaches a short drive away. I’m also thrilled to become a part of the wonderful art community here on the North Coast.”  NRP
