Hello!  I'm Nicole

I was born and raised Los Angeles,CA.  I have a variety of different art backgrounds which has lead me to pursuing 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 practices 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, commissioned pieces of art and I am now starting to show my own work at a few art fairs around the city.

 

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