Meet the Team! NicoleMeet Nicole!
Nicole is a Texas native who has spent the majority of her live in the beautiful city of Huntsville, Alabama. Although she always enjoyed drawing as a child, her true love and appreciation for art began to develop during middle school. She would spend hours designing and drawing colorful characters, writing stories for them and doing fashion illustrations, accumulating dozens of binders and sketchbooks full of her sketches and stories.
She participated in an art magnet program during high school before earning a bachelor's degree in studio art with a focus on painting and drawing and a minor in English literature. She has also dabbled in metalworking, sculpture, photography, web design, and 3D animation. While her focus for a number of years after college was primarily on writing as her creative outlet, Nicole has always tried to keep up with the practice of character design and creation, believing that one of the most vital aspects of storytelling is having characters that the audience can enjoy and identify with.
Now after several years working as a college recruiter and a graphic designer, Nicole is returning to her roots as a painter at the Huntsville location of Pinot's Palette, and she aspires to continue to practice and expand her artistic skills. She believes that art is essential to human happiness and well-being, and loves that she can help bring art into people's lives in such a fun and entertaining way.
In this picture Nicole painted our Team Building Example, which turned out brilliantly.
