Nicole grew up in Norfolk, Nebraska and spent her much of her time playing in the park across the street from her home. Her interest in wildlife and trees grew into a live long passion of the natural world and continues to be a theme in her artwork. In 2007 she graduated from Hastings College, Hastings, NE with a BFA. In 2013, Nicole and her husband relocated to the Pacific Northwest. These days Nicole enjoy's balancing her painting career with reading, camping, dungeons and dragons, and playing with her cats and dogs.
