Nikki Gardham studied at Cambridge School of Art before attending The Drawing Year in 2012-13. She was awarded the Royal Drawing School's Moritz-Heyman Residency in Tuscany and Dumfries House residency in Ayrshire for 2014. Currently she is teaching the Royal Drawing School's Drawing Clubs, whilst completing her tutor training year. Her role as a tutor has influenced her philosophy on the process of making work. Observing the freedom of enquiry that develops within a group of engaged individuals constantly refreshes her own sense of creative freedom. Curiosity is central to her practice, as is having an awareness that the act of drawing throws up more questions than it answers.
