Artist bio

Niki Dionne of Actual Footage of Me is an Illustrator and Fiber Artist based in Dallas, TX. Niki has explored various creative forms in graphic design and photography throughout her life. Still, in 2016 she began illustrating faceless women and exploring how her forms could be communicated using fiber. Niki was inspired by a period in her life when many of the black women she was surrounded by, including herself, experienced life-changing healing and self-discovery. As a result, Niki shifted the focus of her work to illustrate her biggest inspiration, carefree black women. As an artist who has struggled with her identity as a black woman, every piece she creates has a part of her, and the work invites viewers to find bits of themselves, or the women in their life,  in the faceless women. Through her work, Niki explores how self-perceived identity shapes how women of color view themselves.


Through various mediums, including fiber, oil pastels, and digital illustration, Niki uses patterns and texture to bring her forms to life. Niki currently studios out of Trade Oak Cliff, and her work is on display at Sweet Tooth Hotel & Pencil On Paper Gallery.
