Join me for a new adventure

After years of working digitally, I'm taking up a new challenge with paintbrush and knife.

Unique papercraft designs.

A few of my original papercraft and greetings card designs, as unique as the people they were created for.

3D models: mesh, texturing and artwork

From first polygon to final promo art. A 3D professional selling to businesses and enthusiasts worldwide. My commercially-available assets include a range of props, environments and clothing.

Digital artwork

Mainly dance-inspired art, created with 3D software and 2D image software. My digital tools include Blender, Marvelous Designer, GIMP (with GMIC), Corel Painter Essentials, Daz Studio, and Filter Forge.

Everything else...

When I explore somewhere new, I love to take my camera along. Other recent creative interests include needle felting and creating a model theatre.

Adventures in paint, paper and pixels...

Hi, I'm Nicki and this is Ink Arabesque. You'll find here a selection of my creative work in paint, paper, pixels and polygons, as well as ink, wool and anything else I can get my hands on.
