NICOLE IS A VISUAL ARTIST + GRAPHIC DESIGNER BASED IN TORONTO, CANADA.

SHE IS MOST WIDELY KNOWN FOR HER LAYERED ACRYLIC ARTWORK IN WHICH SHE WORKS WITH SOLUBLE PIGMENTS AND ACRYLIC PANELS TO CREATE LIGHT and ELUSIVE ABSTRACTIONS. Each piece is composed of multiple panels that are used to create transparency and depth, resulting in a painting that appears sculptural.

She aims to translate moments in time through color and shape, by way of the layering process. These layers reflect the ones all around us, from the makeup of our personalities to the structure of our ecosystems. The existence of layers is what brings depth to life, both literally and figuratively. 

NICOLE'S WORK HAS BEEN EXHIBITED AND ACQUIRED IN PRIVATE AND PUBLIC COLLECTIONS IN CANADA AND THE US.
