Nikki Dionne, a Texas-based illustrator and fiber artist, crafts work that dissects the “perceived self” versus the “presenting self” of women of color, shaping identity through various mediums like fiber, pastels, and digital tools. Embracing a spontaneous creative process, she draws inspiration from self-perception, often captured in unfiltered selfies, and emphasizes the diverse experiences of Black women in her art. Dionne’s style, honed through practice and recognizable by its unique strokes, thrives in a light-filled studio space, driven by the energy of the Dallas art scene and her journey of self-taught exploration and artistic affirmation.
