Artist-in-Residence: Nikki Storer

Cohasset-based oil painter Nikki Storer is the inaugural artist-in-residence at Sager Fine Art as part of the gallery’s new Artist Collective. An artist since childhood, Storer’s art career took off in earnest about five years ago, when she resumed taking art classes. In 2020, she painted her first commissioned piece and she now has commissions all over the country as well as featured collections for brands like Serena & Lily and Cailini Coastal.
Storer’s artwork draws from the natural beauty of coastal landscapes, particularly the ocean. During frequent walks on the beach, she has marveled at the waves approaching the shore: the curl of the water as a wave crests, the spray of the seafoam as the waves crash toward the sand.
“I’m known for my wave paintings. People tell me they’re transportive,” says Storer. “I’m also fascinated by how ever-changing the water and sky are in different light and at different times of the day.”
As the artist-in-residence, Storer will have an opportunity to showcase her luminous original pieces of artwork in the gallery alongside photographer Brian Sager’s works, meet with prospective clients, and take part in special events involving the local community.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Brian and Carey in the beautiful space they’ve designed,” says Storer. “The artist community here is small, and this type of work can be isolating, so it will be nice to connect with and bounce ideas off of them.”
