Nikki received a BA Hons in Technical Arts Interpretation from Wimbledon College of Art. She worked for a short time in the film and theatre industry before setting up her own design studio in Surrey, and more recently, in East Sussex, creating surface designs for her Nikki Szabo brand of interior fabrics and accessories.
Nikki’s designs are hand painted using a combination of both watercolour and ink and the design is then printed onto a natural base cloth, in our East Sussex studio, using the latest print technology, to produce wonderful, original fabrics.
Established in 2011, the collections continue to grow apace and we are as passionate today as we were when we started out. Nothing gives us more pleasure than seeing our designs help bring clients’ interior design project to life.
This year Nikki joined the Devonshire Collective in Eastbourne, a creative and cultural hub with studios, makerspaces, workshops, gallery and café for the benefit of artists, community members and the public. Since becoming an active and enthusiastic member Nikki now offers a variety of workshops, sharing her love of everything design, sculpture and mixed media, in her studio.
Her contemporary sculpture and multi-media workshops include tuition on a range of innovative techniques and styles, and use an eclectic mix of upcycled, hard, soft and new materials, to create delicate three dimensional works of art. The materials used include air dried clay, fabric, thread, paper, wire, polystyrene, plaster, rubber, jesmonite, cement and cement-fondu. Nikki also shares plenty of ideas to decorate each piece using inks, paints, stamping, collage, beading etc. There really is something for everyone in all of her workshops!
Nikki’s workshops are fun, relaxed, open to everyone and are suitable for all abilities - and most important of all, Nikki actively encourages everyone to explore and experiment with their own imaginative ideas.Keep up to date with new collection launches and other information on our news page.
