She is a member of Norske Billedkunstnere, participated several times in jury work and curation, held a board position in the professional organization (BBK) and continuously participates in exhibitions and art projects.

Kikki Hovland's works are often characterized as surreal as they turn towards the inner landscape of the viewer. She has an engaging lyrical and innovative style, often characterized by organic elements, symbolism, landscapes and animals. Sound, dance and movement are strong sources of inspiration in her paintings, which are often both bright and colourful. The paintings focus on both the individual's inner and outer world, and in this way depict the intensity of life. Nature is an intense and constantly recurring inspiration, this leaves traces in both concrete and abstract expressions. She often uses physical leaves and plants, presses them and incorporates them into the paintings by using the organic forms as negatives.
