Niles says of her work, “My compositional structures repeat themselves, and I am seduced by the movement of form, the drama of unusual illumination, as well as the indifference of empty space. I covet line sensitivity and interesting textures. All my subjects are varied, yet all are related, as they represent the natural environment of our world and our existence.”
