Hi, my name is Nikki Van Ekeren and I am a writer and an artist.

I believe in our amazing ability to adapt and persevere. My work is rooted in self exploration, inner growth and self compassion. 

As one who has navigated through mental health challenges, I write to shine a light on this process of healing and growth. Depression, anxiety and OCD are symptoms that I have struggled with.


I have found that complete honesty and transparency are important parts of growing. 


Life feels more joyous when you live in complete authenticity.

I hope that you’ll discover your inner strengths, abilities and unique power as you read my poetry.
