About this pro

I push boundaries of perception in my art. I make connections between style, layers, and emotions. I'd love to teach the basics or processes to find your own style within your art. I've been exploring and creating for 23 years. I can teach mixed media, oils, acrylics, some printmaking, and various crafts. I'd love to be your creative guide. 

I enjoy the flow state and accessing my intuition. I love exploring and being completely surprised. Art is my greatest connection to the world and I find story in every composition that relates to life and society and expires me to show up in different ways.

    Our daughter did art classes with Nicolette on two different occasions and she LOVED them and learned so much! Nicolette has such a calming spirit that our daughter really took to! She had all of the supplies that were needed and even asked what our daughter was interested in learning before planning the classes. We would gladly do classes with her again!!
