About Nikki Hung

Born in Sleepy Hollow, New York, Nikki grew up in the Hudson Valley- primarily in Poughkeepsie, NY. Her early passion for the arts spurred her to pursue various mediums and methods over the years, including illustration, painting, ceramics, graphic design and photography.

After working as freelance graphic designer and illustrator with her company Cute Core Designs, she started working with The Dutchess Art Association/Barrett Art Center as a volunteer in 2013, eventually ascending as a member of the Board of Directors. In recent times, she became involved with Womenswork.Art, a new art gallery promoting the fine art of under the radar and emerging female artists in the Hudson Valley, and has been appointed as Gallery Director in 2019.

Recently she has decided to focus primarily on photograph, especially in the themes of nature,”people watching”, Taphophilia (the love of cemeteries), and Tombstone Tourism.

Nikki’s artwork has been exhibited in New York City and throughout the Hudson Valley Region.

She currently resides in Poughkeepsie, NY with her husband Tony, their daughter Ava, and their dog Davey.
