Judi Nikoleski is a multi-award winning textile artist based near Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Australia. Her work has received multiple awards for surface design, creative use of dyes and pigments, textile portraiture and landscape. Two of her art quilts have been selected for the Best of Show Acquisitive Award at the Australian Cotton Fibre Expo. Many of her wall art pieces have been purchased by private individuals.
Since 2007 Judi's creative art quilts have been exhibited in twenty five group shows in NSW, Victoria and the USA, including two juried exhibitions at the Manly Art Gallery NSW and two solo exhibitions in Newcastle, New South Wales.
Judi immersed herself in the making of creative textiles after a career change from working in publication and internet design. She had always loved working with fabric and sewing and the change was a natural progression. She built upon a solid foundation in graphic design and illustration by attending multiple courses in creative textiles. This was the impetus for her many series of unique art textiles which incorporate felting, dye painting, silk screening and many other textile techniques combined in unique ways.
