Eureka artist Nikky Morgan-Smith is a prolific painter with a penchant for bathrooms and their "displaced inhabitants". Common Ground intern Jahlia Solomon spoke to Nikky about the local art scene, and what it's like to have your work destroyed by a gallery owner.
Where did you grow up Nikky?
I was born in Vanuatu and moved to the Byron Shire when I was two years old. I relocated to Melbourne when I was 20 and spent nearly a decade there. I've lived in this area, on and off, for most of my life.
When was the first time you realised you wanted to be an artist?
