About the Girl
Nikki Jeske was born with an intense fear of clowns and a love for all green things that grow. She is sometimes referred to as the Blackbird or Nikkabug on various places of the web. She goes by the nicknames Nikka, Nik, and the occasional Whatshername. She attends the liberal and environmental college known as Northland and is majoring in Writing with a minor in Outdoor Education. She hopes to get a job at a Nature Center working with kids, and write and illustrate children's stories whenever she can.
Nikki is currently living in Ashland, Wisconsin while she finishes up one last semester. She and her girlfriend (and Love of Her Life), Ash, live in a small duplex with two other housemates, and a whole houseful of animals (which is why they have nicknamed their place The Zoo). They now have a dog, three cats, three ferrets, two rats, two leopard geckos, and two bettas. They hope to move to a bigger house someplace much warmer when Nikki finishes school. Ash has already graduated with a degree in Biology and Animal Psychology is working at the local kennel, playing with dogs, bathing them, and helping out in all other ways; (on the side, she works for Nikki by editing her website and gets lots of love and food in return for her services). The two of them have some big dreams for their big family.
In short, Nikki is an artist, a writer, an animal lover, and a dreamer. She's in love, and can't wait to make a name for herself in the big, open, and green world.
