Niki will also have a solo show at the Art Museum of Ventura’s hottest new space, The Tool Room, in October 2017, during the famed Ventura Arts Festival.  

Woehler’s paintings have been featured exhibitions in galleries and showrooms in Arizona, including New City Studio, PavoReal Interiors, Roche Bobois, Modern Group Scottsdale, as well as a guest of the Waldorf Astoria Arizona Biltmore Resort during the Arizona Concours D'elegance.  

Her art can be found in private collections all over the USA and Canada. Top-tier interior designers integrate her work into their contemporary designs. Woehler is also contracted with several top art consultants throughout the United States. 

Woehler grew up in Toronto, Canada and has lived in Phoenix since 1994. She studied broadcasting and marketing at Sheridan College, and spent almost 25 years in the industry, including founding and running a boutique ad agency for more than a decade.  In 2012, Niki made the decision to follow her passion and devote herself to painting full time.  She hasn’t looked back since. 

artist statement

Lines, layers and textures invade smooth facades, exchanging surface beauty for depth, character, strength and wisdom.  My paintings are inspired by objects ravaged by nature and the participating elements, including; water, wind, earth or fire.  To me, the longer something stands the tests of time, the more interesting it becomes.  I am drawn to the details of the imperfect, needing to tell its story:  A tree on fire – literally or figuratively; a perspective magnified or obscured by rain; a piece of wood that’s been weathered; eroded rocks, and metal rusted and etched.
