About Me

“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”

— Jonathan Swift



Nikki Balfour is an independent full time artist based out of the Okanagan since 2006.

She draws inspiration from BC’s diverse landscapes, and the atmospheres created by the changing seasons. Her paintings evoke the mood of these environments through the application of her freestyle abstract technique.

Each painting has it’s own depth and unique voice. Standing in front of these works in person allows you to truly appreciate the complexity, subtlety, and depth of the work of Nikki Balfour.


In addition to numerous independent shows and events, Nikki has been involved in group exhibitions and events at various locations in the Okanagan Valley, including: Art Walk, RCA, Kelowna Community Theatre, Vernon Community Arts Centre, Vernon Art Gallery, Bo.ttega, and Sopa's U8 show.

In April 2014, she had the opportunity to show her latest series of work to a whole new audience at the Toronto Art Expo and again at Art!Vancouver in 2016.

Nikki also has a private permanent collection of her work at Kelowna's Bo.ttega Farm Inn.
