About Nikki's Portraits of Childhood
Nikki's Portraits of Childhood was founded in 1995 in Regina, Saskatchewan; Canada. Prior to this, Nikki operated the business part-time as Sacchetti Portraits. Nikki began painting her own children, but soon requests became frequent to paint other people and their families.  Her work not only captures a likeness but depicts the warmth of family ties. Gift certificates may be purchased for your special occasion.   Limited editions are also available on the Shop Now page.  Several of these are now sold out or within 2 - 5 copies of being sold out making them an excellent investment.
