Riki chooses subjects that are viewed as chaotic or uncomfortable on the surface but digs in to unearth the truth and order found beneath. By way of visually telling a story, she communicates principles that stand as anchors to the soul.


Bold color, threading lines, pattern, texture, and text all play a part in her work. Riki uses techniques of layering acrylic paint with elements of collage to create a story of interest, one that invites a closer look to find treasure and beauty incorporated within. The hidden richness in rugged landscapes, nature, daily life, and Scripture are often her chosen subjects.

“Every piece is a sojourn — a temporary stay in something I’m working through or have come to understand. In each layer I choose to yield my expectation and trust hope will come.” Riki’s work provides a window into that surrender.
