artplay fall 2020 teaching artists
Nikki grew up in Georgia and graduated from Kennesaw State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. In 2010, Nikki moved to Birmingham for her first teaching job at the private school where she still teaches. Nikki started an Etsy store in 2016 called Stitch & Petal. She hand-embroiders small flowers on pendants for custom necklaces. Each year she teaches her students to embroider for a special Mother’s Day gift. During her summer breaks, Nikki hosts day-camps with different themes. This is where she began to combine her experience in embroidery and education. Nikki’s favorite teacher has an extensive rock collection, always wants to swing faster, and likes to read in a cardboard box with a flashlight. She also happens to be Nikki’s two-year-old daughter, Amelia.
