Nika Feldman’s work has been featured as a cover article in American Craft Magazine (Aug/Sep 2016), as well as in the Albuquerque Journal North’s art section (Jan 2019) and in the Santa Fean Magazine (Dec 2018/Jan 2019). Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally regularly garnering awards, the most noteworthy being four Research and Creation grants from the Canada Council for the Arts. Additionally, Feldman’s work has led her to undertake projects around the globe in countries such as India, Nepal, Japan, Mongolia, and Mexico. Feldman began her studies in 1990 at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY as a Fashion Design major, later receiving her BFA in 2002 as an Interdisciplinary Studio Arts major with a focus in Textiles and a minor in Art History from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in Canada where she now teaches during the summer semester. In 2003 after receiving her undergraduate degree she was accepted to a three year artist residency at the Craft Studios of the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Canada. Feldman later went on to be awarded the prestigious Monbukagakusho Scholarship which allowed her two years of independent research and studio work under the MFA program at Kyoto City University of the Arts in Japan from 2007-2009. For almost twenty years now, Feldman has worked as an independent artist, supporting herself and her work through a patchwork of scholarships, grant funding, teaching invitations, and temporary odd jobs. Today, Feldman can be found living in Santa Fe, New Mexico furthering her education by pursuing a degree in Indigenous Liberal Studies at the Institute of American Indian Arts.
