Faa Artistic Merit Award Announcement!

I am very pleased to announce my choice for the Fine Art America Artistic Merit Award goes to Nikki Marie Smith! I began following Nikki's work after discovering her beautiful series of music images on FAA's sales page. Nikki's music series is highly creative, positively upbeat and artistic, with her own unique style. I continue to be inspired by Nikki's work and I enjoy her warm friendly personality.

Nikki is much more than a published visual artist, she's also a book artist. Take a look at some of her creations http://www.booksmithstudio.com/category/handmade-books/#.Ua32-UBwrwk. Also check out Nikki's blog http://booksmithstudio.com for artistic tips and tutorials, as well as a closer look into Nikki's palette of creative talents including her Wee Planet photography series. It's easy to see that all of her artful creations are an extension of herself, and why her cheerful approach to marketing has worked so well for her! Please help me congratulate Nikki!! :)

Thank you everyone! This is truly such an honor that I find myself at a loss for words to express my thoughts. Thank you for your belief in me and for your kind words. Thank you for your friendship! This is such a supportive community of artists, and I am blessed to be a part of it. Thanks especially to Christina for nominating me for this honor. Today I'm walking on sunshine, with an extra spring in my step! :-)

@Abbie, yes, Christina has done a wonderful job of communicating everything to me and I will contact you when I receive the trophy.

@Tony, I'm excited to see the trophy you created when it arrives here later. Thanks for starting this wonderful tradition back in 2008! It is inspiring to look at the artwork of the past recipients, each very talented artists!
