The Ickynicks website is named in honor of the many wonderful women, family and friends, who have influenced my life. My Aunt was attending Kent State University. While there she and her three girlfriends created their own club and called themselves, the Ickynicks.

The purpose of their club was to travel outside the United States. These four adventurous young women traveled to South America, Europe and Canada during their college years. Ickynicks represented to them all the wonderful things in life. Many were also artists, and I am honoring them by following in their footsteps.
