Hi! I'm Nicole!

I’m a mostly self-taught painter who loves to create abstracts, portraits, and non-objective art. I am a Harrisburg-native and resident with my husband and two adorable cats.

I started painting in 2014 in an effort to learn a new hobby during a season of high stress in my life. Little did I know that I wasn’t just picking up any old hobby—I was picking up my passion.

 

One of the joys in this creative journey is that art has shown me aspects of myself that I never before knew existed. It’s also surprising as to how many recurring themes of my life show up in my paintings. To this end, I am frequently experimenting with new ways to create as I navigate the impermanent balance between organic creating and structure. Through this process, I often find that my art is an allegory of my own life unfolding onto canvas.

 

It is such an honor to embrace this passion of mine and share it with my audience. My hope for my viewers is that by engaging with my work they are able to find joy and inspiration as they interpret my paintings based on their own experiences.

 

Welcome to my creative space. Thank you for being here! I hope you join me on the many creative ventures to come!
