Nikki Ida studied a BA in Metalwork followed by an MA at the RCA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery. The result of this experience sent her on a whirlwind tour of exhibiting her work in an applied art context, setting up her own design company and then pursuing a career in advertising. Nikki’s work rests very firmly in a conceptual context, not held to any discipline. Currently Nikki is teaching Foundation students at UAL which has been an infinitely rewarding experience.
