Handmade goods are inspired by nature

Nikki Moon, owner of Nikki Moon Art, started getting serious about selling her art this year.

Moon has been drawing and painting for about 15 years. She moved to Durango in 2017 and began selling art about four years ago. She now sells handmade bags and other goods at the Durango Farmers Market.

Moon screen prints her drawings – which she describes as surreal, emotional and nature-inspired – onto her hand-sewn goods. She says her hand-sewn items, which include bags, fanny packs and more recently foraging bags, are typical and not very stylized. She wants to make art that is useful in nature.

Moon uses 100% recycled fabric that she sources from local thrift stores. For her zippers and buttons, Moon uses deadstock materials, which come from clothing from stores that have been shut down.

Nikki Moon Art also sells drawing prints, which are packaged with 100% compostable cellophane and recycled cardboard.

This is Moon’s first year doing the Durango Farmers Market. Her booth is on-site once a month. Market goers can find stickers, prints, bags and clothing at her booth. She also commissions larger pieces upon request.

“I love the market,” she said. “It’s a really cool way to connect with people that I’m selling my artwork to. The farmers market is really special because it’s supporting all local vendors including local farmers, which I’m really passionate about.”

Moon hopes to grow Nikki Moon Art’s online presence after the market is over this fall.
