Connecting With Nature

Collection: Connecting With Nature

"Connecting with Nature" is a new serie I created at the start of 2023 inspired by the colours and beauty of nature I find all around me. Nature is where I go to reset and soak up energy, to then go back to my studio and capture it on canvas.

For me, being in nature is so important, for as long as I can remember; the smell of Spring especially gives me such an intense feeling of happiness, of new beginnings and possibilities...In winter the smell of wood in the stove to keep me warm in the studio, summer that lovely smell of salt on your skin, mixed with sunscreen...Autumn gives you the smell of the earth, the time for planting new beginnings...

The process of these paintings is not entirely new to me, starting with sculpting gesso on canvas, then letting my inspiration flow to choose my colour palette and see where the painting takes me. 

I released the first ten paintings In April 2023 at an exhibition in Antwerp, it was the first time the public saw this collection and half of them sold that weekend. Then last week "Stillness" went to a collector in Cornwall.

I am not sure where this new direction will take me, but a few more are about to go to the framers this week and be shown at my open studio weekend in June...

"Rikki is such a great teacher, her studio is full of her wonderful creations, such an inspiration."

Barbara Davidson

I was following Rikkis facebook account for quite a while.
Grown up at the baltic beaches and sailor since I can walk, I was so fascinated about the paintings she is creating. Every painting, every landscape, every wave is an expression of her deep connection and love to the sea which is catching the viewer quite immediately.
Therefore it was only a matter of time until I fell in love with one of her paintings as it also reminded me very much to my home island. Thus I just ordered it.
Rikki was very friendly and helpful supporting the entire time and the painting arrived proper packed and protected against any possible damage.
Even a wonderful wooden framing was included and now the painting is placed at the bulkhead of my boats salon giving me joy everytime I am sitting there with a cup of tea in my hand.
Thank you Rikki !


Having spent most of my life living on islands, the sea was always a fascination. I could happily sit for hours looking at it, admiring is beauty, it’s strength and the way it is constantly changing. I first met Rikki in 2018 and was invited to visit her studio where I was stunned by her seascapes and her #making100Waves project. When buying a new home in 2019 we really wanted a painting which captured our love of the sea and we didn’t hesitate to commission Rikki. We spent some time working with Rikki to agree the design and size and get her advice. We got regular updates from Rikki and then in spring 2019 she presented us with the finished work. Rikki captured a beautiful moment in a constantly changing seascape. It is stunning and it sits in pride of place in our living room. Nice one Rikki !
