Aslan Brewing Co.

"I am Nikki Frumkin, a Seattle based artist and alpinist. My work is inspired by time spent hiking, climbing and mountaineering in the great pacific northwest. I am interested in the patterns in nature I find as I explore. My watercolor and ink paintings try to capture the wonder I feel when I am in the mountains. In this way, the viewer can discover what they already know about who they are and how they belong to the wild." -- Nikki Frumkin
