Niki Butcher Hand Painted Photography
Niki Butcher has been photographing throughout the United States and other tropical locations with her husband, legendary black-and-white photographer Clyde Butcher, for over five decades, capturing the beauty and uniqueness of places and people. Niki finds the beauty not only in nature but also in the historical buildings and interesting people that inhabit the landscapes. Inspired by the hand-painted postcards of the 1930s, Niki first started painting her black and white photographs in the 1980s. Using her own photographs, oil paints, Q-tips, and cotton balls, she turned landscapes into dreamscapes and reality into fantasy. Today, Niki uses a similar technique to paint digitally. She first photographs with a digital camera and then paints her images using Photoshop and a Wacom tablet.
