Nikki has always been attuned to the beauty and power of color. Growing up, she'd dress her family (sometimes against their will) in her own creations and make collages out of vibrant patterns from fashion magazines. She studied fashion design at the Academy of Art University and has worked as a freelance seamstress since. She's also passionate about her band, The Minks! You can find her at @nikkibarberrr and her music @theminksss.
