Nikki Reisman has a gift for visualizing shape and color, and consigning it to canvas for the world to enjoy.
Nikki, an agent with Windermere’s Rancho Mirage office, has had art in her soul since she was a young girl. Was she good? “It kept me quiet,” she replies with a grin.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, she graduated from New York’s Vassar College with a BA in Art History, which she put to work teaching high school art. When broader horizons beckoned, she moved to Minneapolis and built an interior plant business. (“It was all the rage back then.”) Next stop: 10 years as a stockbroker with E.F. Hutton and Smith Barney…and another 15 years running her own restaurant: Nikki’s Café and Bar. “It was all great fun,” she says. “But in 2000, I was tired of the snow, and I bought property in Ben Lomond, in California’s Santa Cruz Mountains. From there, it was an easy move in 2003 to the desert…and here I am!”
Building upon her native talent for drawing, Nikki paints bold abstract pieces on oversized canvases, employing color, depth and contrast, and often surprising herself as the work matures. “Sometimes I’ll come back to a painting and I’ll realize it’s not finished,” she notes. “Art is always evolving; it can say different things at different times.” Nikki’s work is represented by Colin Fisher Studios, Perez Road, Cathedral City.
