Nicole was born into a world of art as the daughter of an accomplished sculptor. Her earliest memories were created in an environment of figurative bronzes and walls covered in massive abstract paintings. Being surrounded by art created in her a deep appreciation for it and a desire to create it herself.
Nicole uses various media and rich texture to create her work. Her goal is to create evocative works that will both spark the imagination and please the eye with contemporary lines, balance, and overall composition.
Since 2011 Nicole has shown her work in several shows and galleries throughout the region and has won two awards through the Lincoln Arts Council and National Arts Program. In 2015 she was selected as a participating CSArt Artist through the Lincoln Arts Council and was honored to be a judge for the Lincoln Arts Festival. In 2016, she was awarded a 1st Place Award at the Celebrate Wildwood Art Festival in Wildwood Missouri. In late 2017, she became a founding studio artist and collaborator with Chapin Studios and Gallery located in downtown Lincoln and in mid 2019 she moved her studio back home. While with Chapin she acted as an art consultant during regular business hours, a co-curator, helped with new artist acquisitions, handled marketing and social media and designed and maintained their website.
Nicole lives in Lincoln Nebraska and in 2016 left her position with the City of Lincoln Law Department to pursue art full time. She now devotes her time to creating in her home studio. She finds great pleasure in spending time with her family and friends and relaxing on her front porch. She is blessed with one supportive husband, two beautiful children, and three spunky dogs.
