Hello!  I'm Nicole

I was born and raised in Los Angeles,CA. I have a variety of different art backgrounds which has lead me to pursue a career in Scenic Art. I went to school for Set & Exhibit Design and then I changed focus and went to school for Fine Arts with a Painting concentration. I decided to combine a bit of both practice and study Scenic Painting at Cobalt Studios in Upstate New York.

I have since moved back to Los Angeles where I have been working as a freelance painter.

I do murals and commissioned pieces of art

 

My aim is to bring my unique skill set and knowledge of various styles of painting to a myriad of entertainment opportunities.
