Art Donation for pollination event

I was asked by St. Andrews church if I would donate one of my art pieces for their upcoming pollination event. They are hosting a Bee and Butterfly pollinating day to celebrate what bees and butterflies do for all of us, so I hopped at the chance! This is my first design so I wanted to share it with you guys and ask for you to come out and support their cause and look for this banner 😀

Custom Fragrance Oils

Custom blend fragrance!

Hi Everyone!, I have decided to offer you guys something unique! I am offering for 1-week custom-made fragrance oil for $25.00 or a sample bottle for $10.00! This is a unique blend that I will make just for you and for an additional $5.00 I will send you a small sample of my fragrance oil “Alluer”!

Shiva Sly Designs offers custom fragrance oils that when your natural pheromones are released combine with these pheromones creating a soft, sensual fragrance unique to you!

This is a unique blend that I will make just for you and for an additional 5.00 I will send you a sample of Alluer! So everyone who knows me knows that I love to blend scents and I have made several for friends who have asked “can you make a custom blend” These friends have suggested that I offer this in addition to the fragrances oils that I recently launched at my last art show, like “Alluer, Nektaria Fresca, and Wildcat”.

How this works is that you will send a request through shivasly.com and share a bit of information about you. What you like your favorite color is, what your favorite sport or hobby is, and with this, I will be able to create a unique scent for you! Once I have created this scent I will share with you what the different fragrance blends are and the medicinal properties that it offers. I will begin this offer soon, so keep an eye out for my new commercial! Have a Great day!

What is most exciting about these custom fragrance oils and the Shiva Fragrance oils, in general, is that it these oils blend with the client’s body pheromones instead of trying to disguise it. When you perspire most perfumes try to hide your natural chemicals creating a need for more perfume or other methods to disguise your natural body odor.

With these organic fragrance oils, there is no need to hide your natural scent because the oils blend with your body chemicals creating a soft refreshing aura around you which is very appealing to others. Just dap a small amount under your arms, behind your earlobes, behind your knees and anywhere else that you like and watch the effect that this oil has on you and those around you.

We should also mention that there are many healing attributes in many of the organic blends which I create. These oils have medicinal properties and depending on the individual blends these can bring serenity, sensual, harmonious feelings to mind when wearing them.

I will begin this offer soon giving me time to have this promotion added to my store for purchase. Also once I have created your unique scent I will share with you what the scents are and the medicinal properties that it offers (if any) and keep the ingredients for you for your future purchases. Keep an eye out for my new commercial because I will launch this offer shortly after  Have a Great day! PS Any questions DM me.

Success!

I Natures Essence was the name of our art event which I created with 3 other artists; Jim Seaton. Hillary Taylor, Mike Turley,  Daniel Bisso our coordinator and myself.
Natures Essence art show success by Nikki Shiva

We focused on sharing our individual concepts of Nature. We were granted the space for the show by Sharli Jo Ziebarth owner of Limber Tree located in downtown Billings, MT. Guests expressed how elated they were by the evolutionary progress my artwork has taken since many that evening had seen my earlier work (which was first launched in 2012 at the YAM downtown Billings.MT).

There was also an overwhelming admiration for the launching of new fragrance oils. I was told that the sweet, refreshing, and delightful fragrances which were samples during this show are creating a buzz and a high demand for the product. I am very happy with these reviews!

art pieces created by Nikki Shiva

Our next 2 shows are now in the preliminary phase but to give you a hint one is looking to be in June and the other in October.
I have decided that with there being an array of different materials in the world I will continue to evolve my products in a way that will truly demonstrate the high resolution, high quality and in-depth details of my art pieces.

Nauters Essence art show success! by Nikki Shiva
I will also create shows specifically for the variety of perfumed oils that I have created, beginning with some privately hosted parties within my local area, to vending shows, and then focus on touring a few states.
In the meantime, I am looking forward to sharing more and bringing exposer to Shiva Sly Designs.

Shivas Sly Fragrance Launch

Origins of Shivas Fragrance

Shiva  Fragrance launches!  Nikki started blending perfumes and oils when she was still a child. Nikki seemed to naturally understand the subtle changes necessary to create delightful fragrances. Nikki has spent years studying the history of fragrances. She studied the history of perfumes ranging from ancient Eygpt to the designer lines from France to New York. For many years she had been asked about the many different fragrances she wore, and all though she gave the information freely her ability to blend the correct balance to her oils have been unmatched. Finally, she was asked to create her own line of fragrances. Now you can experience her passion through her specially blended exotic fragrances!

Shiva Sly fragrances by Nikki Shiva

Nikki Shiva has searched high and wide for a unique perfume bottle to accentuate the exotic scents which she has created. She has chosen not only to use the excepted essential bottles, but also the unique handblown alluring bottles which she found being made in Egypt and Morocco.  These are handcrafted bottles made with pyrex glass highlighted with 18 karat gold, with sizes from 1 1/2″ to 3″. Now you can enjoy the enchanting scents which she has created in a beautiful handblown bottle as well!

Hi, world! Time to tell my journal our next adventure! <3

Namaste 😀
I am excited to see my art taking on new heights. I have been added to a small group of artists in the downtown Billings,MT area 😀 We were selected to represent the local art scene by the DBA committee in Billings,Mt! We were to be given a traffic box to decal our art onto, I just happened to have been privileged with 2! I do very much appreciate this opportunity to show Montana my work and to take my resume to the next level! Now I look to have my art on as many traffic boxes I would be allowed; and then to move into the hospitality industry, from Billings, MT to Dubai! I am very excited to share this with all of you and look forward to reaching the next level in our endeavor 😀 I see you!

Fine Art

Fine Art

fine artWhen we think of fine art we the of art that is pleasing to the eye, relating to us on an emotional level or of art which has stature and value.

When you look up the definition to the word “FineArt” within the first paragraph you read “art developed primarily for its aesthetics or beauty”. Fine art can range from art, music, crafts, fashion, home decor and landscaping.

The more prominence that you give to your creation the more it is seen as fine art.

When you begin to integrate your love for beauty by creating a theme around you, you begin to show your very essence and creativity. Learning to cultivate your worlds such as your business, home, and office you create a cohesive statement about yourself.

Creating a theme that flows from one to the other conveys someone in complete balance and harmony which comes from with and is expressed by its surrounding, much like the even flow created when using Feng Shui as shown in the Spruce.

Once you recognize that your environment is a direct expression of you, a new desire is born to manifest a cohesive story.

Vibrant or pastel colors, floral designs and arrangments, cobble stones and bedding, wall coverings and patios share an insight into who you are.

When we hire a decorator or a designer we are hiring them to create this very image. We are asking them to create a cohesive representation of who we are to the world. This is why it is very important to know yourself and what you wish to convey to others.

Having more than one decorator or designer can create a confusing story, but having a single decorator or designer who has an overall view of who you are and what you want will be a dynamic expression of yourself.

Let us start from the side of the home;

We will usually have our home decor based on the color pallet of the walls in the home or the floor design of the home.

HGTV has on their website 11 steps that their Interior designers look for. Katie Leavy from Capital Design in Washington DC says “The first step being the purpose of your room; will it be used for a family comfort or for entertaining guests.”

Reader’s Digest in a blog “What Interior Designers notice as they enter your home” say’s “The first thing that I look at is the space” Founder and interior designer at Designs Mac.

We hear from The Spruce Decorating 101 Interior Design Basics by AphroChic that there is a distinct difference between interior designers and interior decorating.  The clear distinction is training and the focal point which is trying to be cultivated.so when looking for assistance with your design keep this in mind.

So when looking for assistance with your design keep this in mind.

fine art by Nikki ShivaWhen I am deciding the art for clients business, office or home, I will take into consideration the color pallet of my surroundings, the floor design as well what has been expressed to me ( likes and dislikes, style of the client are they contemporary, or classic, conservative or visual.

An artwork is an intimate way of expressing oneself. We tend to show our vulnerability, strengths, passions, weaknesses, and desires when we choose to project our surroundings as fine art.

What appeals to some may not appeal to others and it is for this reason that art is such a personal thing.

When you come from a spiritual point of view the cohesion of your home, business, and office decor matters.  I decided to look on Pinterest and saw that everything matters in spiritual decor every nook and cranny says something about the person!

Now when we step outside of our office, business or home we want to make sure our landscape also conveys the same message, so picking a landscape designer who listens, is detail oriented and creative is important.

When I visited Billings Landscaping website what caused me to look further into what they could offer was what they said about their designers “We strive to provide unique landscapes that accentuate your home” because it is important to me that the exterior of my home and business matches the interior as well as myself.

Taking some time to do some will help you to find a designer that will bring to light what matters most to you. In turn, you will be able to share that outwardly with your clients, your family, and your friends.

Through calculated steps and coordinated decor placement, you will be able to make a concise insight into who you are and what you represent.

Art in Billings Montana

There is a new wave of art in Billings Montana thanks to the Traffic signal box program put on by the Billings Downtown Art Committee.  The program was created to beautify the downtown area with local artist’s artwork. The members of the program will commission an artist to create an art piece to be used on the traffic signal boxes. This year I was nominated and will have my art piece shown! I am very excited and wanted to share this exciting news. The art piece is set to show on Sept 17th! I will provide more information once we get closer to the date and the unveiling! Hurrah!!

Arts where it’s at

Arts where it’s art

So is arts where it’s at? I would have to say “Yes” why?

Quantum Leap

Art is our way of sharing beauty with the world, yet it is also how we express ourselves. When you think of history from the beginning of humanity there has been art.  Cave art has been found around the world and scientist have shown that it was a way to express what the artist saw around them and express their creativity.prehistoric cave art as abstract art prehistoric cave art as abstract art

They have found 350 prehistoric art caves between France and Spain dating as far back as 25000 years ago preceding the end of the last ice age.  There are cave art depicting beings which aren’t familiar to us in our present time which leaves room to question was this their form of abstract art or something far more intriguing?

We say arts where it’s at because we see how we use art to another world into our reality like the wonderful artists create doing street art.

3D artWe have leaped into a time where we can create 180 viewed art pieces which simulate a repetitive pattern.

In our current age art has taken on many forms, from 2D to 3D and we have only touched the surface. Art is where it’s at because art is our direct outlet and unique to each individual person.

We have used art to share our fears, dreams, and aspirations from the beginning of time and we are not done yet.

Now that we have created the 3D printer man can set his reach further into the abyss of possibilities and truly let his imagination run wild.  To be an artist in the 21 century is an exciting gift for we are creating in untapped places and break boundaries set by a time with limited access and consciousness. Today we excel in the art field making “art where it’s at” by utilizing all of the gifts given to man.
